Most of us had a very difficult year in 2020, including the start of 2021. Many have lost loved ones due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The FFGNR also mourns the loss of dedicated committee member Peter Teurlings who succumbed to Covid-19. We remain grateful for the knowledge and expertise he offered the Friends of the Faerie Glen Nature Reserve.
City of Tshwane Nature Conservation has also faced numerous challenges with the Covid-19 pandemic and associated regulations. This has varied from the reserve being completely closed to a staff shortage. We have, however, as volunteers done quite a lot for the FGNR in the past year. More information will follow in the newsletter.

Please consider making a donation. If you make a donation of R1000.00 and larger, we can issue you with a Section 18A tax donation receipt. Please contact Louise Kritzinger directly, as this payment would have to be made through WESSA’s (Wildlife and Environmental Society) bank account to which FFGNR are affiliated. WESSA is a registered NPO (Non Profit Organisation) and registered as a PBO (Public Benefit Organisation) with SARS to issue Section 18A tax donation receipts to donors. A Section 18A entitles a tax payer (individual, company, cc or trust) to deduct donations made to PBO not exceeding 10% of taxable income.
We would like to thank you in advance for your continued support of the Friends of Faerie Glen Nature Reserve. As humans we can survive without many things, but we cannot survive without nature.
