Gift of Game – The 1st Night

NYMMO was created in 2015 by gamekeepers to help promote the benefits of managed Moorland.

However NYMMO is not just about the gamekeepers and last night it was the turn for the ladies to shine, with one of the estates house staff Anne-Marie and Becca taking the lead.  They took their catering skills to new limits, cooking 30 pheasants to make two massive desperate Dan pies to feed the guests at the Columba project, a church drop-in centre in Middlesbrough.

The pheasant was kindly donated by local estates and so this cut down on the food miles and the need for plastic packaging. The hot meal was enjoyed by around 50 people and our two ladies have been asked to do more cooking for this very worthy cause.

On top of the warm food cooked up and served last night, Wild & Game have very kindly supplied Grouse, Pheasant and Partridge ready meals that have been taken by the Columba project as part of their outreach assistance they offer.

Last night was the first evening of this kind and we are extremely humbled and proud of the support we have been given by Wild & Game and our local estates.  We already have further evenings similar to this planned over the coming weeks and with continuing support we can hopefully look to carry this project on throughout 2019.
