Jackie and Kevin of Wild Things Canoes of Redruth say,

“We have donated the Tootega Pulse sit-on-kayak as we are keen to protect Cornwall's wildlife and wild places and want to support the work of Cornwall Wildlife Trust. Kayaking along the river, creek or coastline in a beautiful place like Cornwall is something very special. Enjoying the scenery from this perspective is a wonderful experience and a kayaker can normally approach wildlife much closer than a walker can. By offering the Tootega Pulse 95 as a prize we hope to raise awareness to this alternative way of ‘getting out there’.”

Dee Reeves, Trustee for Cornwall Wildlife Trust says,

“At the Trust we feel we are so lucky to live in a county where you can spot all kinds of wonderful wildlife. We want to keep it that way by protecting the habitats that provide these precious species with a home. Last year the annual wildlife raffle raised some £5,000. The aim is to beat this amount in 2016, so we would ask you to buy your raffle ticket today and encourage your friends to do the same. All money raised goes to supporting our work for wildlife so every ticket sold makes a difference."
