(UK) Help replace 89-year-old beekeeper's setup

This just popped up while I was mindlessly searching for the end of the internet…

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.

This is the BBC article:

Wow. The utterly meaningless cruelty of whoever did that leaves me speechless.

Agreed. It’s saddening to hear of it. I can’t comprehend how you can derive pleasure in the pointlessness of the destruction.

Posted this yesterday after reading the news article but didn’t see the crowd funding info.

Thanks for sharing.
