Herdwick Sheep Breeders' Association Limited is a not for profit mutual society registered with FCA.
The HSBA has delivered several projects for the benefit of rural communities.
- The provision of sheep hurdles for use at the events free of charge
- The provision of a mobile drinking water bowser free of charge
- A block public liability insurance policy
- Provision of a set of marquees that are available at a heavily discounted price
The above initiatives have served to secure the financial viability of events that form an integral part of the culture and heritage of the Lake District. Such events attract their local communities and visitors to the region.
Following storm damage to a set of marquees that were erected for Loweswater Show on 1 September 2019 causing £10,000 of damage, HSBA wish to raise £1,750 to cover half the £2500 excess on their marquee insurance policy.
A grant of £1750 has been awarded from the Lake District Foundation and they are now helping us 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. Thank you for looking at our Crowdfunder and we hope you can contribute.
