Charity dog show returning to Bardney
The Bardney Charity Dog Show is returning to the village for its second running this year, with organisers hoping to replicate the same success as the first show.
The first event in May raised more than £700 for three regional charities but Diane Jackson, joint-organiser of the show, has introduced four new categories, including best puppy and waggiest tail, for the July event.
The second show will take place on Bardney Playing Fields off Horncastle Road on Sunday 22nd July. Entry to the event’s 21 categories is open to all dog owners from £1.00 and judging starts at 11am.
Proceeds from this month’s show will go towards the Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire Air Ambulance, Pre-loved Border Collies and Metheringham Animal Welfare Supporters (MAWS).
Diane Jackson said: “Our show in May was our most successful to date in Bardney, raising £727 for our charities and attracting more than 150 people.
Myself and Julie Hill have put a lot of work in to make this month’s show even bigger than before. We have an agility course, tombola, raffles and a range of stalls along with the introduction of the new judging categories.
“It’s a wonderful family day out and as with the first show, guests can enter their dogs in any of our novelty or pedigree categories. There will again be trophies for each category winner and the money from the entry fees will be donated to our chosen charities.”
In May, Chestnut Homes, which is building at the Manor Farm development off St Lawrence Drive, donated £250 to cover the costs of running both shows.
David Newton, Managing Director of Chestnut Homes, said: “The last Bardney Dog Show proved to be a great day, raising hundreds of pounds for deserving charities in Lincolnshire.
“We’re proud to be supporting Diane and the organisers of the show and we hope this month’s event proves to be just as successful.”
