Barn Dance for Rainforest Fund - Settle - 5 May

In the end we raised £133.50 for the "Rainforest Fund"

We gave this £133.50 to a project in Borneo. A dictionary and guide book to birds and wildlife is being written in the Mt Kinabalu area at so that local guides can learn the names of local wildlife in their own language, the national language and in English.

More specifically:  funding a 3 way dictionary of bird and other nature useful phrases in English, Malay and Dusun (the mother tongue if these mountain people which they use in every day speech). which can be used as part of the project for training the guides as described in the project funded by the Rotary Club of Kota Kinabalu for Phase 3 of a programme to train 10 Mt Kinabalu mountain guides the skills of bird and nature guiding.
