Help replace 89-year-old beekeeper's setup

An elderly beekeeper’s setup has been destroyed in what is believed to have been an arson attack.

89-year-old Ron Hoskins has spent the last 20 years researching and selectively breeding bees that are able to cope with Varroa Mite, which kill millions worldwide.

On Monday, his sheds and greenhouse at Stanton Park were burnt to the ground causing thousands of pounds worth of damage to generators, microscopy equipment, beekeeping suits and more. Dozens of bee hives were also vandalised or tipped over in the mindless attack.

We're raising money for Ron, to help replace his setup so he can continue making a difference in the wildlife world.

The funds raised will be handled by Ron's son Dave Hoskins, who will be named as the beneficiary on this campaign.
