Jan Harvey


We cannot thank Jan enough for all her support throughout the year! She has held ele-parties, fundraising events, donated proceeds from her art work and has educated many people on the plight of the Asian Elephant. She dedicated this year to supporting EleAid and we are delighted to announce that through her efforts, an enormous £1000 has been raised.

Jan, thank you so much, we hugely appreciate everything you have done for the Asian elephant this year and words cannot express our thanks!


A big thank you to Jan Harvey who is undertaking many initiatives to help the elephants. Her efforts were kick started with an Ele-party where herself and a group of friends gathered together to share stories, pictures and personal experiences of elephants. They also donated money and contributed prizes for a raffle. An incredible £240 was raised. Jan says “the results were amazing there were very moving stories, funny tales and a huge variety of input’.
