"You don't need a bull hook to control an elephant. You can guide an elephant with love... And bananas..." Lek Chailert, founder of Save Elephant Foundation
 
World-renowned elephant conservationist, Saengduean Lek Chailert, is coming to Manchester for one of only four UK screenings of the acclaimed documentary Love and Bananas which aims to raise awareness of the plight of the Asian elephant.

Lek, the founder of the Save Elephant Foundation, has devoted her life to the conservation of this endangered species and, since 1996, has rescued two hundred distressed elephants in Thailand and neighbouring countries, winning many awards including being invited to Washington by Hillary Clinton in 2010 to be honoured as one of six Women Heroes of Global Conservation.

This will be Lek's first visit to Manchester and she will take part in a Q&A, following the screening of the documentary on Wednesday 7th November at Federation House.

The film, by American documentary maker Ashley Bell, tells the story of Lek's life and follows her and her team as they travel 480 miles across Thailand to rescue Noi Na, a 70-year old partially blind trekking elephant, and bring her to freedom.

Love and Bananas is being screened at Federation House in Manchester city centre by Prestwich Community Cinema after a Salford resident who had volunteered at Lek's sanctuary, Elephant Nature Park in Thailand, contacted the organisers and asked for help to bring the film to a local audience. All proceeds from the night will be given to the Save Elephant Foundation.


Love and Bananas
Wednesday 7th November - doors open 7pm for 7:30pm start. Q&A at 9pm.
Federation House

After years of campaigning and protests, The Grange home for children with severe complex needs finally shut yesterday, after the last resident was shunted out of the city.

"Salford Council should be ashamed of themselves for getting rid of such a valuable facility" says Rebecca Howarth, parent and Save The Grange Again campaigner "We have fought the Council for nearly two years in a bid to keep the care home open but unfortunately we have reached the end of the road."
