The wildlife charity have been unable to have visitors over the last couple of months so are looking at other ways to raise funds.

The Hawk Conservancy Trust are desperately needing money in order to continue providing care, conservation and research work into many birds. 

Their visitor centre in Weyhill has been shut since lockdown began. 

So in order to raise a bit of money, they are giving people a chance to win a unique VIP Hawk Conservancy experience, including a behind the scenes look at one of the trust's flying displays and feeding some of the birds. 

Chief Executive Penny Smout said: 

"Our philosophy has always been to avoid pressuring anyone to donate but rather to earn our keep by providing world-class visits to the Trust. However, with the lockdown we’re limited in our ability to generate income. 

We’re hoping this raffle initiative will be seen as a new approach to earning our keep, balancing seeking support with offering something in return to those kind enough to help. It gives every supporter the chance of winning a special VIP experience of meeting and flying some incredible birds of prey as well as learning more about them."

Tickets are £5 each and can be found on the charity's website - www.hawk-conservancy.org

The raffle will close on Sunday 14 June,and the winner will be drawn on Monday 15 June  and notified on the same day.

They are also posting regular updates on their social media channels, for anyone missing the birds of prey.
