NEW BEE SUITS
Members of the Rotary Club of Kintore, Kemnay and district visited the apiary on Thursday 17th August to officially hand over the children’s bee suits purchased with their recent donation.
Kemnay Community Bee Group is delighted to announce it has bagged £4,000 from a Tesco funding scheme.
Tesco teamed up with Groundwork to launch its Bags of Help funding initiative, which sees grants raised from the sale of carrier bags being awarded to thousands of local community projects every year. greenspace scotland is working with Groundwork to provide support to communities in Scotland.
KCBG would use the funding to refurbish their beekeepers' hut which is used for apiary demonstrations and training sessions for local people and youth groups in Kemnay.
Sonya MacPherson, Chairperson for KCBG, had this to say, "Through the 'Bags of Help' scheme, Tesco provides local groups within the community, a phenomenal level of support. We thank them for their enormous generosity and to the shoppers at Tesco for choosing to support our group. We look forward to continuing our beekeeping ventures throughout Kemnay and the surrounding area."
