Raising funds to help birds on the Wolds

This year I used my exhibition to raise funds for a new conservation project that I'm planning. Nest Boxes on the Wolds will involve building and putting up nesting boxes of all shapes and sizes on farmland in this area. I'm hoping the boxes will boost, and support, bird populations here.
So far it has been very successful. I raised £247 at the exhibition via a raffle in which I offered £150 worth of wildlife prints as first prize. I'm pleased to announce that the winner was Alison Vickers. Well done Alison and thanks to all who entered for helping me make a start on my latest conservation project.
