2012 Charity Donations

Last year (2012) we elected to change our constitution enabling us to donate to other human charities as well as Dog, and as a consequence a donation was made to each of the following: -

£1000 – Alzheimer’s Society – Leading the fight against dementia. The leading UK care and research charity for people with this disease and other dementias, providing support to their families and carers.

£1000 – British Heart Foundation is a charity that aims to prevent people dying from heart diseases.

£1000 – Combat Stress. (The Enemy Within) A small but significant number of veterans leave the Armed Forces with psychological wounds. These can lead to depression, phobias, anxiety, relationship problems and, in some cases Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Combat Stress works with veterans of the Armed Forces and members of the Reserve Forces, through effective treatment and support for mental health problems. All services are FREE to the veteran, and are only made possible through statutory, non-statutory and voluntary fund raising. Amongst other benefits, Combat Stress offers a 24-hour Helpline; Outpatient Clinics, Community Outreach Services, and specialist clinical treatment at three short stay treatment centres in Shropshire, Surrey & Ayrshire.

£2000 – East Anglian Air Ambulance – Serving the counties of Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Norfolk and Suffolk. This service provides FAST clinical expertise – medical crews possess enhanced clinical skills, which exceed those of road ambulance crews.

£1000 – Harley Staples Cancer Trust – At only 8 years old Harley was diagnosed with a rare Leukaemia in January of 2009. He faced so many tests and treatments, but like a brave soldier, he smiled and laughed everyday. Sadly Harley lost his battle, but in his memory his parents are fundraising to build a purpose built holiday home for teenagers to use FREE with their families, enabling them to enjoy fresh air and respite away from hospital

£1000 – Prostate Cancer UK – Helping to discover lifesaving new drugs to treat this disease.

£1000 – The Spinal Injuries Association – is a user-lead, national charity, providing support and information for the Spinal Chord Injured Community.

In addition to these donations, a further £2,700 was raised at the show on the Macmillan Nurses Run”, making a grand total of £11,700.00.

We are only able to donate these amounts through the help of all the volunteers that offer their services free of charge, our generous sponsors and of course all the competitors entering the show. I would like to offer my personal thanks to all our helpers in 2012. This was our best year for help and support, and we could not do it without you.
