Gainsborough Wildfowler's Cub presented a cheque of £450 to Gainsborough Adventure Playground.

The Wildfowlers are a shooting club, of about 50 members and the money was raised through a raffle and auction at the Wildfowlers' recent 50th anniversary dinner.

The dinner was attended by around 100 people and was held at Weston Rooms, Gainsborough.

The Wildfowler's clun is active in its fundraising and after seeing the recent coverage of GAPA's fight not to lose government funding decided it could do with their help.

Lisa Pinkney of GAPA is very grateful for this decision, she says "We really appreciate the money from the Wildfowlers Club.  It cane at exactly the right time.  We are planning on taking the children away for Christmas."

Gainsborough Adventure Playground is a massive service, open six days a week all year around and currently has 300 children registered.
