A Generous Donation

Sunday, March 8th 2020

Following the success of the 34th Hunton Steam Gathering in September 2019, the HSG Committee have been able to make donations to local charities and good causes. 2019 was the biggest and best event in the 34 years history. The Gathering was originally conceived to raise much needed funds for a play park on the village green and has grown in size significantly over the years since 1985. It is run by a voluntary organisation and an army of helpers and the event aims to make donations where possible with any surplus funds. This year Foxglove was amongst thirteen local charities to benefit from this successful event.

Thank you to all of the members of the Hunton Steam Gathering Committee for this kind donation which will be used to buy vital tools for the Foxglove conservation volunteers. This money will enable us to continue to manage the 100 acres of varied habitats for wildlife. 

Hunton Steam Gathering takes place annually in farmland to the east of the Village of Hunton in Lower Wensleydale just off the A684, between Bedale and Leyburn, and is signposted from all main roads (nearest postcode for Sat Nav users is DL8 1QF). The next Gathering will be held on Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th September 2020 with the ploughing event commencing at 11 am on the Sunday.
