CHARITIES AND WORTHY CAUSES

The Ellingham and Ringwood Agricultural Society continues to support local and national
organisations.

Our well developed charitable policy, enables us to make donations every year, and to
make available funds for the operation of our bursary scheme which provides support for
agricultural students. The amount that we give away is directly related to how successful the
show is, the more that you all support the show, the more we are able to give away.

The opportunity for people to enjoy a wonderful day and also support various charities is a
policy that is now being followed by other events and shows. Some of the recent beneficiaries
are:

  • Bournemouth Leukaemia Fun
  • Forest Holme Hospice
  • The Trussel Trust – Foodbank
  • New Forest Pony Enthusiasts
  • The Rotary Club of Ringwood
  • Bats Conservation Society
  • The 3rd Ringwood Scout Group
  • New Forest Nightstop
  • Routes to Roots
  • The Rotary Club of Ferndown
  • Hope Housing
  • Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance

If you know of a charity that you would like us to consider as a beneficiary, please contact
the show secretary.

Thank you all very much for your continued support.
