West Country Farmers Flood Relief
The unprecedented flooding is a catastrophe for many farmers in the South West of England. Along with other Hunts, the QH has organised the collection of hay, haylage and straw for transportation to the South West for distribution to those most in need. If you can donate fodder or straw, please contact Geoff Brookes on 01159 372325.
The QH has also opened a relief fund, and if you feel you can help with the costs of transportation or to more general relief for those farmers, please send a cheque payable to the Quorn Hunt to the Quorn Hunt Kennels, Gaddesby Lane, Kirby Bellars, Melton Mowbray Leicestershire LE14 2TQ and marked ’West Country Relief Fund’ on the envelope.
Thank you in anticipation of your much needed support
