First prize-winner of our 2013 Grand Draw Margaret Davies, a long-time supporter of the Trust, came along to collect her prize on 3rd July 2014. She brought her friend, Pamela Cure, to share her ‘Day with the Conservation Team’.
Margaret said: “I have never won a prize on a raffle before so I was over the moon when I found out I had won. I love all animals and birds, and Pamela and I support a few animal charities. To see the work that the Barn Owl Trust does was truly wonderful. We didn’t know what to expect and certainly didn’t realise how far we would go (up to North Devon)! We visited two monitoring sites with David and Jo and enjoyed a lovely lunch at the Church Inn in West Down in the middle of them. The first site we unfortunately couldn’t get across to (walking through the maize crop) but the second site we drove right up to and we were lucky enough to find a brood of four owlets and the female. We got to hold the owlets while David ringed them. To hold a Barn Owl chick was something I never envisaged I would ever do. We enjoyed everything and had a grand day from beginning to end. Everyone was so lovely that we met; A marvellous, marvellous day”.
Pamela added: “I’m so glad she took me!”
“A grand day out…buy lots of draw tickets this year and you may also be able to enjoy an excellent first prize!”
Don’t forget to buy your tickets this year for a chance to win one of our great prizes, including your very own ‘Day with the Conservation Team’.
