Thanks to the incredible generosity of those that came and supported the day, a staggering £1,245 was raised for Herefordshire Mind.
Brinsop Court Estate, named as one of the top wedding venues in the world by Condé Nast Brides Magazine, opened its gates and hosted a Woodland Walk in its stunning grounds, in aid of mental health charity Herefordshire Mind on Monday 6 May 2019. This event was one the many planned during the year to support the Hereford charity.
Everyone was welcomed – even well-behaved, four-legged friends on leads – and enjoyed a 4 mile walk through the beautiful 250-acre woodland and soaked up the breathtaking scenery which surrounds Brinsop Court.
For those that were looking for a shorter but no less enjoyable ramble, there was also an alternative 2.5m woodland route signposted too. A fun, children’s Nature Hunt was organised with a small prize for every entry which went down very well!
Walkers were encouraged to bring their own picnics to enjoy afterwards in the gardens of the manor house. Plenty of tea, cake and scones was served in aid of Herefordshire Mind too.
Entry to the Woodland Walk was completely free, however donations to Herefordshire Mind were greatly appreciated, to help fund its much-needed work in the county.
Mike Lowe, General Manager at Brinsop Court said, “This was the first time the grounds of Brinsop were open to the public in this way. It really was a fun day and in support of a local charity at the same time.”
David Harding, Support & Development Manager at Herefordshire Mind said, “We are very grateful to Brinsop Court for opening their estate. It is only through the support of individuals and organisations that we are able to continue our work supporting some of the most vulnerable in our community.”
