A handover event took place on 12 May at in Fakenham, Norfolk, to mark R G Carter’s donation of two new brushcutters to Fakenham Area Conservation Team (FACT), ensuring that the valuable work the voluntary group undertakes to improve the local environment for the community and wildlife is able to continue.
The conservation group is almost entirely reliant upon voluntary donations and was unable to replace the two vital pieces of equipment, which had come to the end of their working life.
FACT member Chris Yardley said: ‘I must offer our heartfelt thanks to R G Carter for this most generous sponsorship. The brushcutters will be put to good use and will make a very real difference. This has been a great boost to us all as we had wondered how we were going to replace these vital bits of equipment.’
