HESC THANK YOU – OCTOBER & NOVEMBER 2018

Special thanks to everyone that has contributed towards the animals at the Hoedspruit Endangered Species Centre over the past few weeks.

974 TELKOM CYCLE CHALLENGE – RIDE FOR RHINOS
The HESC was proud to be selected as a supported cause, in the Telkom 947 Cycle Challenge once again this year.

We had the excellent support of over 90 cyclists that cycled for the Rescued Rhinos @ HESC, and we are so grateful to every single one of them. We had the incredible support of the Rhino Life Line, run by Investec, that not only helped with raising funds, but also sponsored the drinks and the catering, for the well deserving cyclists. Special thanks to Geraldine Fleming for all your help in arranging this, and for cycling with our HESC team.

Special thanks to Gazebos for Hire, ZeroPlus Printers, Raising Rhinos, Antalis, Spoke Works, Domains and Pharma2U for their generous contributions. We are extremely grateful for the wonderful support.

THE ADVENTURES OF OLIVIA – CHILDREN’S BOOK

Tatiana Ferreira and her husband, Malcom Ferreira, have been big supporters of HESC for a few years now. Having fostered Olivia, Tatiana decided to write a children’s book dedicated to her brave story. The book has been published, and we look forward to receiving a copy soon. Thank you Tatiana!
