As a charity, it is vital that the British Deer Society each year raises much-needed funds to support our education and research work. Without these funds, many important projects and training initiatives simply would not be able to take place.
Our next auction is:
DONATE A LOT
Can you offer a Lot?
The BDS is extremely grateful to all those who have already pledged a Lot for this year’s auction. However, we urgently need more donors to come forward. If you can offer us an auction Lot, big or small, we are keen to hear from you.
Popular ideas for Lots include:
- Days out, events and experiences, related to both shooting and non-shooting
- Short breaks, meals out and getaways
- Quality new clothing, accessories, and equipment
- Paintings, prints and deer or countryside related artwork
A joint campaign is underway to inform members of the public about the need to give both pregnant or nursing deer and their young plenty of space when out enjoying the countryside.
Over the coming weeks, from mid-May to July, people may discover newly-born deer hidden in the grass or undergrowth and might mistakenly assume that they have been abandoned Please do not touch, disturb or move them as usually their mothers will not be far away.
The new Spring edition of our taster members’ Deer magazine Digital Deer is out now. Packed with deer news, articles and features.
