Regular blog readers will remember that two years ago, when she was very very ill indeed, Rosie was mightily cheered up by a visit from Harriot and her pet, Alan the snail. He’s a large African land snail. Or she is, I’m not sure whether Alan is a boy or a girl.
Well, Alan and Rosie hit it off, and Alan has been doing his/her bit for TKOE. Alan did what snails are good at, and produced many Alanettes. And they have raised £25 for TKOE . How cute is that?? Thank you Alan and thank you, Harriot for being an excellent snail breeder and having this brilliant fund-raising idea.
Compare and contrast this with Royal Mail. For the first time in four years of trading (four years????) they lost a TKOE parcel. A hoodie. Compensation – no apology and a book of stamps. So TKOE has escalated this to see whether the charitable heart of the Royal Mail is still alive and beating. Will let you know.
