Enormous Elephant Run 2016 (London) raises over £50,000!

The Enormous Elephant Run- Fundraiser 10km run took place earlier this morning at Clapham Common.  `Elephants’ & Supporters started gathering from 10am onwards (organisers were there from much earlier..setting up!).  The run started at about 10.35am… and consisted of 5Km, 10Km and 15Km runs   (1 lap, 2 lap or 3 lap of the path that zig-zagged in the Band-stand area of Clapham Common, South London).

This is the 3rd annual such fundraising event, organised by  `The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust’ – which embraces all measures that compliment the conservation, preservation and protection of wildlife. These include anti-poaching, safe guarding the natural environment, enhancing community awareness, addressing animal welfare issues, providing veterinary assistance to animals in need, rescuing and hand rearing elephant and rhino orphans, along with other species .

  • Many Congratulations to my sister Vathani Navasothy for raising over £750+ .
  • The team she’s part of (Team Mama Afrika) raised over £3,000 (offline donations still being counted).
  • The `Enormous Elephant Run- London’ has raised over £50,000 of funds.

Fundraising: Headstone for Eleanor Ray Bone – Matriarch of European Wicca

Fundraising initiative

Dear all, this matter has come to my attention.

We’ve all heard of Doreen Valiente – mother of Modern Witchcraft. Well, this one is about Eleanor Ray Bone – Matriarch of European Wicca, because most Gardnerian initiates in Europe trace their roots to Ray Bone’s coven.

“With Witchcraft, your happiness is completely in your hands…”  says Eleanor in one of the Documentaries.

This is the lady who hurried off to rescue the grave of Gerald Gardner and raised funds to have his grave moved to a safer place and a proper headstone (in Tunis).

And now the community would like to do the same for Eleanor.

Do visit the new website, and if able to, make a small or large donation towards this cause.

 

I do have a particular interest in this matter, as I of the same Wiccan Lineage of this lady!

 

Please visit this site and make your donations (by paypal or credit cards)

The fundraising is managed by highly respected  Wiccan Elders and Scholars such as  Dr Vivianne Crowley, Chris Crowley, Professor Ronald Hutton, Dr Melisa Harrington,  Rufus Harrington,  Philip Heseltonand of course Sophia Boann who initiated this fundraising venture.  (I know 5 of these personally).

Bright Blessings.
