Louis Jordan 18th January 2022

My name is Louis Jordan and I'm 12 years old. I have raised 183.50 for the BDMLR to help seals, as they're my favourite animals. I did this by making and selling a range of wood products. I would love this money to go to the new seals pup hospital please :)

Angela & Andrew Lewis 8th September 2021

Congrats to all the team on this amazing endeavour, and all the best for your ongoing work in the future. Lizzi told of us the BDMLR and the new seal pup unit on a chance encounter in the IOS, wonderful.
