41 worthy, local charities and good causes in Winslow and surrounds will receive donations totaling £21,600 due to the success of this year’s Winslow Show. Visitors turned out in their thousands to support the Show and an estimated 7,000 people helped to raise the whopping £21,600.
The Show, organised by volunteers from Winslow Show Association, aims to provide a great day of family entertainment and to raise money for local good causes. All the money raised on the day will be given to a wide variety of good causes including: Winslow School’s sensory garden, Swan House, Winslow Community Bus, Florence Nightingale Hospice, Young Carers, Winslow Youth Club, Riding for the Disabled, Willen Hospice, the St Laurence Church, Friends of Winslow Health Centre and Winslow First Responders.
Commenting on the show’s success Dean White, chair of the Winslow Show Association, said: “This year’s show was an amazing success. The horse show attracted more entrants than ever with a good variety of classes. The craft tent, vintage vehicle exhibition, dog show, stalls, agricultural displays and children’s fairground proved popular attractions on the day. And the sunshine attracted visitors from near and far to make this a truly memorable family day for all.”
“All our volunteers work extremely hard to make Winslow Show a fun day out, full of family entertainment that celebrates what the town and its local countryside has to offer. We want everyone to enjoy themselves and to help us raise money for local charities that are important to them. On behalf of Winslow Show Association we’d like to say a heartfelt thank you to Winslow Lions, Winslow Rotary Club, Edgcott & Winslow Young Farmers, the Scouts, all our volunteers and everyone who visited the show.”
