SIR - In view of the horrendous disaster in Haiti we are putting on hold our fund-raising for homeless animals.
We have been in touch with Lew Baglow and Grahame Davidson from Rotary Link Barnstaple who are always so quick off the mark in these disaster situations and do such a brilliant job in raising funds.
We need a few volunteers to help raise a quick �600 to pay for one of Rotary's ShelterBoxes which are sent all over the world. It is almost impossible to imagine how absolutely horrendous it must be in a third world country like Haiti, which even in ordinary conditions does not operate as a normal society and is governed by corruption and poverty.
Having watched "Slumdog Millionaire" on the TV recently and to see events unfolding in Haiti where they do not even have the doctors to attend their dying children; certainly helps to put our own problems in this country into perspective. Please help us provide one of Rotary's desperately needed ShelterBoxes and ring us on (01271) 860989.
