River Dee Trust Raising Funds to Continue Vital Restoration Work
The River Dee Trust is running an online auction, during November, with some unique and exciting local lots to experience, not available elsewhere. The auction will raise funds to continue the Trust’s vital work in river restoration, salmon research and education. The Trust makes good use of all the funds it raises.
River Director Dr Lorraine Hawkins said, “The river is such an important part of people’s lives on Deeside and we have been delighted with the support we have received from the River Dee community to help us deliver vital restoration work across the catchment. We still have much to do and this year’s fundraising has a greater imperative as Brexit could mean a hiatus in the funding of large-scale EU backed projects.”
This year’s auction lots include: a tour of Her Majesty’s Pony stud at Balmoral, return ferry trips to Orkney and Shetland, fishing and accommodation on the Dee, casting lessons, ladies’ fishing tweed jacket, deer stalking, a murder mystery evening and plenty more tempting items.
The auction begins at 8pm on Monday 28 October and runs for three weeks, concluding on Sunday 17 November. Place your bids here.
