On the evening of Wed 21 September, BASC NI’s Laura Morrison attended a meeting of the Joint Council for Wildfowling Associations for Strangford Lough, at which a cheque for £500 was presented to Alan Couser (Lifeboat Operations Manager) Donaghadee.

The money was raised following a memorial clay pigeon shoot in early August, held in memory of the late Denis Stephenson who was a lifelong member of BASC, dedicated wildfowler and conservationist.

Denis’s wife Muriel and daughter Denise are pictured presenting the cheque with Andrew Upton (National Trust Coast and Countryside Manager) and members of the joint council looking on.
