Presidents of the Show and Owners of the Sherborne Castle Estate – Edward and Maria Wingfield Digby said:
‘We are thrilled that the Show held in July has been a huge success and is able to donate such an astonishing amount to charity from a one-day event.
As Presidents it gives us enormous pleasure to host this event, which is not only unique in the South West but has evolved into an occasion that appeals to owners of an eclectic mix of treasured Classics in addition to fabulous and priceless Supercars.
By attracting in excess of 10,000 visitors and having the focus on raising funds for Charity the Show exactly matches the ethos of the Castle Estate in being able to share its wonderful location and facilities with the public at large.
This event goes from strength to strength and Sherborne Castle Estate is thrilled it will again be staged at this venue on 15th/16th July 2017, when the first two-day Show will take place’.
The funds will be distributed as follows:-
Cancer Research UK £21,300
