Logging a charitable success against the elements

Thank you to all who took part in our charity log collection on Saturday 19th February

Despite heavy rain, sleet, snow and gale force winds from Storm Eunice, the local community came out in force to join us in Dunford Bridge this weekend.

An intrepid team from National Grid and Morgan Sindall were on-site throughout the morning to welcome visitors, during which time they were able to clear all 80 tonnes of the logs made available from our tree pruning and clearing works along the Trans Pennine Trail.

We’d like to thank all those who came along and made generous donations, which allowed us to raise over £160. All proceeds will be going to Yorkshire Air Ambulance to support them in their vital, lifesaving work across the county.

Andy Neilly, Project Supervisor, said, “It was wonderful to see so many people from the village and local area turn out despite the very challenging elements this weekend.

“We’re really glad that we have been able to give something back to the community as a direct result of our ongoing work together with Morgan Sindall. Thanks to the generosity of visitors on Saturday, we’re also able to support an organisation close to our hearts in Yorkshire Air Ambulance.”
