Pippa and Ian are off to The Gambia again in October

Broken ankles, heart conditions and any other medical condition we haven't considered yet permitting, Pippa and Ian will be off to The Gambia again on 17 October for a two week visit. We have a very busy schedule mapped out, but if any sponsors or members have a card or letter (no packages, please, we already have far too much luggage!) to send out to someone, we would be pleased to take it with us. Please post it to our home address to reach us before 14 October.
