Wheel barrow donation

The National Zoo uses two sets of wheelbarrows on a daily basis. They use the one wheelbarrow specifically to pick up and remove elephant dung and the other three wheelbarrows are exclusively used to bring feed to the animals. The wheelbarrows are used quite a lot and in result regularly break, afterwhich they are just fixed up to work again. The wheelbarrows are now in such a state that a simple repair just won't do the trick. 

The Friends of the National Zoo have sponsored five brand new wheelbarrows to the National Zoo, specifically to the elephant unit, to make the animal keepers workload lighter. Greame Ogilvie accepted the wheelbarrows on behalf of the National Zoo - Greame was very pleased on the donation.
