Bettws Hall raises over £20,000 for charities during 2016/17 season.
Each season Bettws Hall sets out to raise the most amount of money possible for charities close to our hearts that provide vital services to the remote areas in which our estates are situated, with the help from our generous guests.
Bettws Hall and our chosen charities are extremely grateful to have such generous guests grace our pegs each season and rarely does a day go without a team contributing to charity in one way or another.
We were incredibly pleased to have presented a cheque to the Wales Air Ambulance, for £20,000 at the end of the 2016/17 season.
We far surpassed our expectations and this sizeable donation would not have been possible if it were not for the extreme generosity shown by one guest, who would prefer not be named. But his kindness added a substantial amount to this fund and we are extremely grateful for this.
This season we had need to use the services of this fantastic team, when a guest was taken ill unexpectedly on a shoot day. Thanks to the quick response and skills of the team our guest was speedily transferred to the most appropriate, but certainly not the closest, hospital for their needs. So a heartfelt thank you must go out to the WAA team as this further confirms the need for this most vital of services.
We also made further donations to the Game Wildlife Conservation Trust, Children In Need, amongst other individually chosen charities.
A special mention must go to the local community here in Mid Wales who also made generous donations following tours of our hatchery facilities throughout last summer, which enabled us to donate £300 to our local church, St Beuno’s, roof fund.
Finally, we would like to say a huge thank you once again to our high spirited and generous teams, individuals and tour groups for all of their kind contributions. Whether they are big or small, they have helped someone or something that without their money may have fallen by the wayside.
