Thirty-six local charities in Winslow and Buckingham will receive donations totalling over £14,000 due to the success of this year’s Winslow Show.

Kind-hearted visitors turned out in their thousands to support this year’s show in August, and an estimated 6,000 people have helped to raise over £14,000.

The show, organised by volunteers from the Winslow Show Association, aims to provide a fabulous day of family entertainment and to raise money for local good causes.

This year, donations will be made to a wide variety of charities, including Prostate Cancer UK, Swan House, Thrift Farm, the Puzzle Centre, Age UK Bucks, Winslow Community Bus, Treehouse Pre-school, Riding for the Disabled, Willen Hospice and the Firefighters Charity.

Show chairman Dean White said: “This year’s show was a cracking success and popular attractions on the day included the horse show, craft tent, children’s fairground, beer tent and agricultural displays.

“Visitors and stallholders turned out in force and the sunny weather made the day a perfect country show.

“We love creating a special day out for families and raising money for local charities. It helps make Winslow a great community to live in and justifies the hard work by volunteers and supporters.

“On behalf of Winslow Show Association, we’d like to say a huge thank you to Winslow Lions, Winslow Rotary Club, Edgcott & Winslow Young Farmers, the Scouts, all our volunteers and everyone who visited the show.”
