BASC raises £30,000 for conservation
Guests attending the BASC North auction and celebration dinner dug deep into their pockets to support a range of projects run for the benefit of young people and conservation.
The £30,000 raised will support BASC Young Shots, conservation projects in the north of England and the Neyouth charity.
BASC North director Duncan Thomas said: “The fundraising allows BASC North to run projects like Young Shots and Ladies Shooting, while also supporting new events and ideas. These include the Let’s Learn Moor schools’ education project, duck nesting tube and bird nest box projects, plus plans to support future wetland creation schemes on working shoots.”
Next year’s dinner is to be held on 16 March. Contact Rachel.hatton@ basc.org.uk for further details.
