We would like to thank everyone who came to support our event, everyone who donated prizes, our event sponsors and all our trappers and markers without all this help we couldn’t hold this event. Over the past five years we have given away to local groups and community schemes over £17,000, this year we gave away over £5,000. So as you can see your support has helped lots of local groups.

Once again from the Mitchell family a big thank you
