Andrew’s fundraiser for National Trust, Clumber Spaniels to Guard Clumber Bridge

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

I am running the the Edinburgh marathon to raise money to help the National Trust, Clumber park have Clumber Spaniel statutes placed at each end of the repaired Clumber Bridge.

The Clumber Spaniel bread was developed at the park in the late 18th century and took the name from Clumber park.

In 2018 Clumber Bridge was vandalised and more than £500,000 of damage was caused, destroying much of its historic fabric. The restoration project took over two years to complete using sections of original stonework rescued from the lake below, alongside carefully crafted new stone.

The final stage of the project is to introduce a series of new bollards, commissioned in the shape of the Clumber Spaniel, to stand guard and help protect the Grade II listed monument for future generations. This will be a fitting tribute to the lovely Clumber Spaniel bread.

Website Update

The website has now been updated and the links tested are now all working. There maybe the odd one that doesn’t work due to the way wordpress caches the pages. (cache means data is stored on the server so when a page is requested it loads faster using existing stored data)

You may need to clear the cache on your browser to see the updated pages, this option can be found in your browser settings.
