Hosted by our Presidents, Edward and Maria Wingfield Digby of Sherborne Castle, show Chairman Nigel Young invited the 3 supporting Rotary Clubs and Inner Wheel to make awards for a total of 9 charities sharing the £53,000 raised by the show.
Stuart Annett- Show Secretary says –
‘We are delighted that from this year’s Show, held on 17th July, we were today able to distribute to Charities the astonishing amount of £53,000. The funds have been donated to National and Local charities, supported by the Rotary Clubs of Yeo Vale, Sherborne Castles and Brue Valley to assist young people and the needy by contributing to vital medical research, whilst helping local organisations that care for the sick and work with young people. This has only been possible thanks to the tremendous support received from the motoring community as a whole – with special thanks to Car Clubs, private car exhibitors, traders, suppliers, national and local media and our sponsors. We are hugely grateful for this on-going support which over the past three years has enabled the show to raise a total of £85,000 for good causes’
The next show, our 14th year, will be held as before in the wonderful grounds of Sherborne Castle, now a 2 day show – 15/16th July 2017.
