KAWFT - Appeals & Thank Yous - December 2017
APPEAL for any CELLPHONES
If you have any lying around in your draws or cupboards or Father Christmas gave you a new one this year!!
With the nature of work our Patrols and Parks Rangers do, cell phones are often damaged when dropped whilst walking or running in the bush as well as into the lake when on lake patrols.
These are all personal phones that are lifelines to the Rangers and communication by whatsapp, sms and calls can mean the arrest of a poacher or people illegally collecting sand, stone wood etc.
AUGUST TASTY TREAT SALE - Thank you to all those who donated towards and helped with the Tasty Treat Sale.
Well worth the effort even though there was not that much traffic due to the spell of fuel shortages at the time !!
We will definitely hold this again in 2018.
