Charity Show July 21st 2019

Our Charity Show this year is running its own schedule. Hopefully to cater for those that are not as confident at a bigger show, those that do not have much experience and do not want the pressure of competing against the more experienced competitor. This year we have fun show jumping classes, novice showing classes both ridden and in-hand, dressage, handy pony, novelty classes, gymkhana and a dog show!! Plenty for all. We will also be holding a raffle with some fantastic prizes. 

Last year we were delighted to be able to give our nominated charities £500 each and would love to be able to do the same again this year - lets hope the weather is a bit kinder to us this time!

Our charities this year are Guide Dogs for the Blind and Devon Air Ambulance.

Guide Dogs for the Blind

Our ambition is a future where every person with sight loss has the confidence and support they need to live their lives to the full. Despite the devastation caused by sight loss, 70% of adults receive no support within the first 12 months of diagnosis, and are likely to encounter poor education, high unemployment, depression, loneliness and financial insecurity throughout their lifetime.

Since 1931, our iconic guide dog service has transformed the lives of thousands of people living with sight loss, allowing them to be independent. We rely on donations to continue our life-changing work. Every pound raised makes a difference to people in the UK living with sight loss. It costs just under £55,000 to breed, train, and support one guide dog throughout its working life. That’s why every penny you raise positively counts.

Devon Air Ambulance

Devon is a huge county with two epic coastlines, hundreds of quaint villages and acres of rural wilderness. It’s part of what makes our county special. But Devon’s geography can make getting the right emergency treatment to patients complicated. Sometimes people in need of urgent medical support cannot be reached by road easily. At other times it would simply take too long to reach a patient by a land ambulance. That’s where we come in.

In an emergency, we can be anywhere in the county within minutes - from the moors to the shores. The patients we save are ordinary people in extraordinary circumstances: parents, partners, children. Nobody chooses to have an emergency, but thanks to the crucial support of the Devon community, we can be there when it matters most.
