The Wessex Country Fair has broken all records this year! In its 5th year, Salisbury Hospice Charity is thrilled to announce over 4000 attendees and also a record £40k raised.
This year there was something for everyone; dressage camels, duck racing, birds of prey, live music, a wide range of trading stalls and displays of vintage cars and steam vehicles. There were also some new additions including Shetland pony rides and a climbing wall for the little ones and displays of both line dancing and cheerleading for all ages. The Hospice Village, run by Salisbury Hospice’s very own Clinical Team was a tremendous success providing tea, coffee & cakes, whilst the Shrewton Silver Band kindly performed, adding to the wonderful atmosphere of the day.
Paula Flower, Head of Fundraising at Salisbury Hospice Charity said: ’We are delighted that so many of the local community turned out to support the event which has raised an incredible amount for Salisbury Hospice. I would like to thank everyone who helped make the day such a success, especially our tremendous volunteers without whom the day would not have been possible.”
