The award-winning Ryedale Show, reputed to be one of the country’s leading one-day agricultural shows, has allocated £5,500 to charities following the 2014 show with R.A.B.I receiving some of the share.
Christine Thompson, Ryedale Show Secretary said: “The Ryedale & Pickering Lyth Agricultural Society is a Registered Charity in its own right and therefore we have a duty to support other community projects and Charities wherever we can.”
The show dates back 148 years and this year’s show, on Tuesday, July 28, at Welburn Park, is expected to attract even bigger support because it will host a qualifying round of the National Horse of the Year Show’s Shire horse classes.
Other charities to benefit from the 2014 show were the Farming Community Network (FCN) and The Friends of St Gregory’s Minster, Kirkdale.
