Taking place on Sunday 17th August – a bright but blustery day, this major event for the local farming community was proudly sponsored by Kings Court care home.
As a thank you for all the assistance received from Kings Court care home, one of the races was named after the home, ‘The Kings Court Care UK Lamb National’.
The runners in our race were:-
Timmy won this race, however he did not win the final race, The McFarlane Butchers Sheep Steak Grand National.
The event was well attended and supported by all the Dales folk and the staff and families of Kings Court. Deputy Manager of Kings Court (and part-time sheep farmer), Jules Coulthard along with her friend Jo, brought two of their sheep – Sonny and Jeffrey, along to the home to meets some of the residents.
Residents pictured are Tommy, a retired shepherd, Nancy, a retired sheep farmer and Edith, who previously had a small holding where she raised sheep. Also pictured are staff Hayley Coatsworth, John Parkin, Judith Parkin and Jules Coulthard and friend Jo.
The initial estimate was that £2,200 was raised on this eventful and fun day – all proceeds going to Cotherstone Pre-school – a village school in the Durham Dales.
