Turgwe Hippo Trust
The Turgwe Hippo Trust is a Zimbabwe based Hippo conservation, non- profit organization. By adopting one of the Turgwe Hippos you will help us to protect their lives and improve the habitat in which they live. Adopting a Turgwe Hippo allows us to save the Hippos from drought related scenarios, as well as keep these endangered Lowveld Hippos alive. Saving Hippos helps us to protect other wild animals in the area as well. Our site “Save The Hippos” is the first web site for the protection of wild African Hippos in their natural habitat.

Society of Recorder Players
The SRP brings together recorder players of all ages all over the UK.

Most of the day-today activities take place in branches of which we have over 50 across the British Isles: they meet monthly (or in some cases more often) for playing sessions, and these are an excellent opportunity to get together with fellow players and learn about the recorder, its music, opportunities to play in small groups, courses etc.

Most branches are conducted by a Musical Director or by conductors from within the branch, but also have well-known visiting conductors at some of their meetings.

Many branches organise concerts and other activities in their local community.

We are a small hobby kennel situated on the outskirts of Plymouth. We are a 15 minute drive from Dartmoor where we take our dogs for runs or to swim in the river.

We are a husband and wife team who have a passion for rottweilers and have owned them for many years. We very much believe that the rottweiler should be 'fit for function' and strive to keep our dogs in tip top condition.....

Aside from the music, you'll find comedy, great food, and even the WI with their homemade cakes and a toboggan run!

The Proprietary Library is one of Plymouth's oldest historic institutions, founded in 1810. It was originally situated in a John Foulston-designed building at the centre of the City in Cornwall Street, but was bombed in World War Two and moved to its present location at the top of North Hill after the war.

It is a Registered Charity run by a Committee of Trustees elected by the members (who are known as Subscribers) at each Annual General Meeting. It has a regular income from investments and lettings and this supplements the subscriptions to cover the running expenses of the Library and for the purchase of new fiction and non-fiction books.

Friends of Plymouth City Museum & Art Gallery (FPCMAG)

The Friends of Plymouth City Museum and Art Gallery (FPCMAG) is a registered charity whose principal purpose is to support the work of Plymouth City Museum and Art Gallery and help acquire objects for public display.

The Museum opened in 1998 to celebrate the River, the international sport of Rowing and the town of Henley on Thames.

A registered charity, the Museum depends upon private donations, business sponsorship, grants from trust and foundations, admission charges and the support of our benefactors, donors and friends.
Altruistic donation is the giving of a kidney, from a living person, to a stranger who has kidney failure. We also aim to publicise why more living kidney donors are needed and to support people who are considering this type of donation. Patients with kidney failure have the option of dialysis or transplantation when both their kidneys fail. A kidney transplant can provide patients with freedom from regular dialysis, a better quality of life and longer life expectancy. Unfortunately, very few patients have someone who can give them a kidney, and on average most patients have to wait on dialysis for two to three years before a kidney becomes available on the national deceased donor transplant waiting list. Although the UK performs more than 2500 kidney transplantations a year, there are over 7000 people waiting for a kidney transplant, of whom 300 die each year. Despite the shortage of donors, we know that many people would be willing to donate a kidney if they knew how to do so. Our aim is to raise awareness of kidney donation and support people through the giving process. - So Beautiful Shopping
