A trip to the Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition in Beverley in 2018 has inspired one young visitor to complete a fundraising walk from Beverley to York, to raise money to save rhinos.
Acacia Van Dyk, aged 10 and from Cottingham, visited the exhibition at the Treasure House last year, which showed winning photographs from 2017, and was moved by the stunning and shocking picture she saw of a rhino with its horns removed.
