Comedian Rob Brydon was on hand to pick a local winner in the Pollyanna Pickering Foundation, Winter Prize Draw.

The lucky winner was Mr C A Wright of Derbyshire, who won an original painting by award winning wildlife artist Pollyanna.

The foundation raised £1,500 for the South Yorkshire Badger Trust (SYBT), of which Pollyanna is a patron. The trust works to protect badgers and their setts. They also raised a further £2,350 to purchase a mobile rehabilitation aviary for the Secret World Wildlife Rescue Centre in Somerset.

SYBT representative Graham Shepard said: “The cost of materials for this purpose is escalating at a frightening rate, so this unexpected donation is extremely welcome at this time.”
