The Sevenoaks & District Farmers & Butchers Social Club donated £4,835 from the proceeds of the now closed Sevenoaks Cattle Market.
For the past 20 years, the club has been managing the funds of the market and recently decided to donate to local charities, including R.A.B.I, the air ambulance, the Hospice in the Weald, and children’s charity ‘Eleanor’. The club’s chairman, Anthony Williamson (pictured left above), presented the cheque to Kent committee chairman Charles Tassell (right) at a lunch event.
The Sevenoaks Market was one of the oldest markets in England. It was originally established in 780, during the reign of King Offa. The livestock market changed locations and went through many forms over the years, growing to include antiques, horses, and motor auctions. After more than 12 centuries of service, the market closed in 1999.
