A truly worthwhile cause, the Penrith & District Red Squirrel Group and organisers of the Lowther Show are thrilled that monies raised for the northern charity amounted to a staggering £426!
A most worthy registered charity and one close to the hearts of many in and around the Penrith area is the protection group fighting to maintain the red squirrel population, the Penrith & District Red Squirrel Group. Visitors gave generously to the charity raising £213 with Countryman Fairs matching pound for pound and bumping the total up to an amazing £426!
Countryman Fairs presented the cheque to the charity and all the monies raised will certainly help in the fight to protect the numbers of these beautiful native creatures.
On behalf of the charity and of Countryman Fairs many thanks to all those who donated so generously. Of course the fight to save these incredible species does not end here. Along with its local support from businesses and people, the cause is now appealing to everyone to dig deep and help in the fight to save these creatures native to these parts of the country.
Memberships for the charity are available by donation starting at £20 a year, and more sizeable contributions of £10 a month will play a huge part in helping to maintain the protection of these species.
