Tai Tarian to Donate Old Uniform to African Charity

Tue 05 Sep 2017

Having reached the end of its life, Tai Tarian is to donate its old, NPT Homes branded uniform to charity.

The uniform which is no longer needed, is to be sent to Zambia where it will be worn by rangers at the Chipembele Wildlife Education.  The rangers, who protect some of the world’s most endangered animals from poachers, currently do not have uniforms and so this donation will be a great help to them.

The donation is being organised in conjunction with the National Police Aid Convoys, a charity set up in the 1990s to deliver emergency and development aid all over the world. 

As well as handing in their old uniform, staff have also been donating their own, unwanted items, including children’s clothes, bed linen and shoes.  The donations have been collected and sorted at Tai Tarian’s offices in Baglan before being taken to the National Police Aid Convoys’ headquarters in Nottingham from where they will be sent to Zambia.

Dan Wagstaff has been co-ordinating the collection on behalf of Tai Tarian.  He said:
“We’ve been overwhelmed by the response from staff to this appeal.  As well as handing in their uniforms they’ve also been donating their own unwanted items and we are very thankful to them for their kindness.

We are also very grateful to Days Rental, who have kindly donated a van to enable us to take the clothes to Nottingham.”

Jules Langstaff from the National Police Aid Convoys said:
“We are very grateful to Tai Tarian and its staff for being so generous in supporting this initiative  These donations will really be appreciated by the Zambian wardens who are working hard to protect their country’s wildlife.”
