This Saturday we were lucky enough to have the British High Commissioner, Judith Macgregor and her husband, John come to see us! The British High Commission has been a huge supporter of the Grootbos Foundation for years now so we were grateful for them come and personally meet some of our staff, coaches, athletes, and other program participants.
It was an especially great experience for them to come and see the Green Futures fascilities. Every year Green Futures sends 2-3 students to work with the Eden Project in Cornwall, U.K. to study for three weeks and the High Commission plays a critical role in sponsoring the students. They even had the pleasure of being toured around by one of our former Eden Project participants and current Grootbos Lodge guide, Anecke.
We were so honored by their visit as it was such a wonderful opportunity to deepen our relationship with such loyal friends.
