Grand Christmas Draw 2016


In October, we began selling tickets for our Grand Christmas Draw to raise funds for the Native Honey Bee Research Fund.

The draw took place at our monthly meeting on 12 December. Congratulations to all the winners.

Ticket sales totalled 1287 and huge thanks to everyone who bought tickets and to those who sold them on our behalf.

A free place on the 2017 Beginner Course and a Family Beekeeping Experience were offered by the association and many other prizes were kindly donated by various individuals and businesses. We thank them all for supporting this worthy cause.

The prize donors, in no particular order, were: -

Dave Roberts

Jenny Whitham

David Spalding

Carol Llanvalley

Dennis Pugh

Carol Demmer


Abbey Farm Bistro

Steve Rose

Glyn Thomas

Philip Keys-Shaw

Frank Brown

Keith Davies

Caroline Mullinex

On the night of the draw, a couple of other prizes, including a box of homegrown fruit, were left on the prize table. We have tried to track down the donors without success but thank you so much!
