Local Charities Benefit From Record Breaking Eccleshall Show

26th April 2018

The organisers of the 2017 Eccleshall Show have announced that six organisations will receive donations following the very successful 70th annual show last September.

A total of £1,900 is being shared between Eccleshall First Responders, the newly established Eccleshall Drivers Scheme, Eccleshall War Memorial, Staffordshire Womens Aid, and Staffordshire Blood Bikes, with a gift of £100 to Drake Hall Women’s Prison in recognition of the help they gave both on the day the show and with the clearing up.

The 2017 Show proved to be the most successful ever, thanks in no small part to the beautiful sunny day which drew record crowds to the event at Sugnall Parks.

Plans for the 2018 show are now well under way. The show will be held on Saturday 1st September at Sugnall Parks. The show website is currently being revamped but full details will be available very soon on www.eccleshallshow.co.uk. Committee members will also be promoting the show on their stall at the Eccleshall Victorian Street Market on Saturday 23rd June.

Notes for Editors:

Eccleshall Show Society was founded in 1947 with the aim of providing a social event for the local community. The show has expanded significantly in recent years but it remains a very traditional rural event run by volunteers. The generosity of local sponsors helps to defray the considerable costs of staging such a show. Any profits are donated to local charities.
