Woolfest has a tradition of encouraging visitors to make or create something either before or during the event. For some years we held a woolly sheep auction and then we had the very popular bunting project
2014 was our 10th anniversary and we hosted a special charity auction of handcrafted fleece animals.
We had a fantastic array of woolly beasts. Our chosen charity was our local Allerdale Red Squirrel Group who do an enormous amount to protect our red squirrels as we have one of the few remaining habitats. As a result of the auction they raised over £1,000!
