Sponsored classes at
Local Horse Shows
As our company is based in rural Lincolnshire, and supply wood shavings to private horse owners and equestrian yards, we support many horse shows in the local area. We sponsored a class at the Burton Hunt Pony Club show jumping event in January and at their hunter trial at Hackthorn Hall in April 2022. We supported White House Farm Shows and Norton District Riding Club last year and will continue to sponsor their shows throughout the 2023 season.
Collingham Young Farmers Club
We donated timber and sheet materials to the Collingham Young Farmers Club so they could create their 'All Creatures Great and Small' themed trailer! Congratulations to them for winning the 'Decorated Trailer Competition' at Lincolnshire Show 2022!
Dawn Plant for a fund-raising event
We donated timber to Dawn Plant for a fund-raising event. The timber was used to make wood craft decorations to sell on the day. Dawn held a Macmillan Coffee Morning at North Hykeham Youth Club and raised an amazing £2,510.00!
Christmas Tree Donations
North Scarle Primary School received donations of Christmas trees and timber for projects.
Other organisations we help a little bit
This year we will also be supporting Lincs and Notts Air Ambulance, Swinderby Primary School, North Scarle’s Annual Duck Race and the Lincoln & District Model Engineering Society who run a miniature railway in North Scarle.
