Coffee Morning at Richard Pike's, Settle

12 April

Richard kindly offered his new flat in the centre of Settle as a base for a coffee morning in each Saturday in April. Ont the 12th April the designated charity was our Rainforest Fund.

At the previous Saturday coffee morning some of his neighbours told me about their holiday in Borneo. Their hotel and its grounds were a sanctuary for wildlife. Much of the land between the airport and the hotel had been scraped clean of trees, by huge machines, scraping up the clay soil.. They showed me a picture they had taken of a rescued orang utan.

On the 12th people were generous and we raised £125 for the funds.
