Mark Winterburn Annies Field

11:10am 19th November 2014

After losing his mum to Leukaemia, a Portland resident is honouring her memory by buying three and a half acres of land on Portland Bill.

Mark Winterburn has set up 'Annie's Field' at the southernmost tip of the island with the money his mum left him in her will to preserve the natural beauty of the land.

He told Wessex FM: "My mum was very passionate about the environment, the natural work and Portland itself. We moved down to Portland when I was 10 years old and a lot of my childhood was spent running around Portland Bill. So it's basically a tribute to her."

People can buy a share in Annie's Field for £25 to help look after the land and the wildlife that lives there through Mark's website:
