Three individuals now own the world famous TDF sheep previously displayed at The Black Swan in Leyburn. This was a ewe-nique opportunity to grab a baa-gain and own a piece of Tour De France memorabilia.
These 4 amazing 5 foot high sheep have now been auctioned and have raised £450 for local charitable causes following the success of the Tour de France coming to Wensleydale.
The total proceeds will be shared between the following local organisations.
Yorkshire Air Ambulance http://www.yorkshireairambulance.org.uk/
Swaledale Mountain Rescue http://www.swaledalemrt.org.uk/
Leyburn First Responders https://www.facebook.com/Leyburnresponders

Owner of the Black Swan pub, John Begley said “It’s great that these icons of the Le Grand Depart can now be enjoyed by others whilst benefitting local causes at the same time”.
