Interns at the acution

Thanks to great support from local people and businesses, the World land Trust (WLT) raised almost £1,500 at the Charity Auction held in Halesworth, Suffolk where our office is based. All funds will support urgent conservation work – saving some of the most threatened habitats and wildlife on Earth.

Local auctioneer Nicholas Rudge stirred up the excitement; keen gardeners competed for the most unusual lot of the evening, 10 bags of Lama’s dung, while great prices were fetched for lunch at the award-winning Leaping Hare restaurant and a Biodiversity Tour of Westminster.

Organising the auction were WLT’s two new interns, Golku Hamedi and Annelies Nieuwenhuis. The experience gave them an insight into what is involved in successfully raising funds for conservation. Thanks to their hard work the event was a great success and we would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who supported it.
