Bee Aware raises £2,279.19 for St Michael’s

Local beekeeper Rob Williams popped in this week to drop off a cheque for £2,279.19 which was raised during Rob’s ‘Bee Aware’ event which was held at Earl Mortimer College on 24th Feb 2018.
Hundreds of people swarmed to the free event to learn about what goes on inside a hive. The donation honeypot was filled by visitors buying raffle tickets (with prizes donated by local businesses), playing to Splat the Rat, purchasing local honey (dominated by Rob’s beekeeping friends) and eating cakes baked by the WI.
St Michael’s would like to thank Rob and everyone who helped gather a big pot of nectar for St Michael’s.
