The highlight of the sale of sheep with lambs at foot at Bentham was the sale of a Dorset cross Leicester ewe with a Beltex cross Texel lamb from Joe Gorst and family, Old Hutton, with the proceeds donated to North West Air Ambulance.
It was the last female sheep bred by his late mother, Janet Gorst, and initially sold for £200 to Steven Crane, Ribchester. The outfit went on to be sold several times making £250 to Neil and Linda Allan, Killington £300 to Frank and Sue Towers, Wray, £400 to the Kelsall family, Cold Cotes, £600 to a fund raised by auction yard and office staff and cafe and finally sold to Aaron Troughton, Sedbergh, for £250.
A total of £2,000 was raised through the ring and with other donations, the fund reached £3,398.
