The Keswick area wish to thank all who supported the two trails held at Peter House, Bassenthwaite. To the numerous local farmers who gave us leave to run, to Brian for sorting out the new trail, to Brian, Spike, Duncan, Oliver and Thomas for laying the trail and to the quad bike taxi service for getting the pup trailers out on time. To Eric and Andrew on the gate, the road scouts and all who helped make the trails a success. A big thank you to Joanna and her team for running a very busy cake stall - £406 was raised. To everyone who generously gave raffle prizes, baked cakes and gave or sent donations. £1350 was raised on Sunday which added to the trails on 25th June means that £1000 will be donated to the Great North Air Ambulance and £1000 to Cockermouth Community Hospital. Hound trailers’ generosity never ceases to amaze. A huge well done to everyone.
A magnificent total of £1,007 was raised at Wasdale trails for the Children's Heart Unit at the Freeman's Hospital. Many, many thanks to
those who donated, sponsored trails and provided the catering.
