Venturers of the Week: Bob and Jo Westcott


All the way from America!

Bob and Jo Westcott are from new Smyrna Beach, Florida. They’ve joined us as sponsors of a Pay it Forward placement – they heard about the nominations, and wanted to provide another chance for us to bring someone great to site! Here’s a little bit more about them:

We were both teachers for many years, and as educators we understand the thirst for knowledge.  DigVentures allows us an opportunity to help someone in such a quest by sponsoring a Dig For a Day.  It is difficult to hold on to what is valuable from the past, and DigVentures is an opportunity to assist in securing our world’s fragile heritage.

To the Pay it Forward nominee who receives the spot, we are so happy to grant you a small part of your dream.  Enjoy your day to the fullest. To DigVentures we support you in realising your dream!

And yes, eagle-eyed readers who spotted the name, Bob and Jo are Lisa’s parents. Aren’t they a fine looking couple?!
