Following storm damage to a set of marquees that were erected for Loweswater Show on 1 September 2019 The storm caused £10,000 of damage, Herdwick Sheep Breeders Association wish to raise £1,750 to cover half the £2500 excess on their marquee insurance policy.
We granted of £1750 to them via our small grants fund and we are now helping HSBA with this crowdfunder to raise the remaining £1,750.
If this Crowdfunder is successful, HSBA will be in a position to continue supplying the marquees that are a fundamental necessity for such events.
The following organisations make use of their facilities:
Millom & Broughton Agricultural Show
Wasdale Head Show
Egremont Crab Fair
Threlkeld Sheep Doig Trials
Without the marquees some of these show may not be able to run.
