Me looking brave before taking to the air (and the wing) of the plane. Wow, it was cold !! But the whole experience was totally exhilarating.

Jan's Blog

Computers and the internet are amazing things. One of my concerns with putting together this site was that it could remain current, yet with all my travelling I've often much to say, but little time to say it. Years ago when reading the news it would take me days on end to reply to the kind letters people sent. Now, with the magic of the modern age, I can keep you up to date with what I'm doing and other events in my life.


Date: 23rd February 2021


A few weeks ago I was asked by this charity to be a Patron along with someone I admire greatly - the lovely Peter Egan. The day I accepted a dear little injured dog was brought in to the sanctuary - she’d been hit by a vehicle and paralysed in her back legs. They called her Jan for me - photo attached

I’ve made a donation to the Charity and also paid for her to have Doggie Wheels when she is full grown. She is already looking so much better but won’t walk again

People might question why I support Charities in far away countries - but the level of cruelty and lack of help would make a stone weep.

This small charity was set up by an English nurse who works full time but still manages to run the charity from her spare bedroom - No Expensive and luxurious HQ and eye watering salaries paid to staff????. That’s why I try and support where I can.

All charities have been badly hit by Covid especially the smaller ones who rely heavily on their Charity Shops which, of course, have been closed for best part of a year.

Please visit the internet and spend a few minutes reading about this superb Charity - ANIMALS SOS SRI LANKA.

Money donated to these small charities goes so much further than the same amount would do at home. For example - I paid £100 for Jan’s doggy wheels - but in this country the equivalent would be over £400. Perhaps they are custom made and might be better fit - but surely any help for a disabled animal is worth the effort.

I hope to visit my son in Australia for my ‘Big’ Birthday next January - how did I ever get so old?? and might just be able to make a stop in Sri Lanka where I’d love to visit the Sanctuary.

Even the price of a cup of coffee - donated monthly would be so welcome and helpful.

Thank you. Jan
