A £500 donation was made recently on behalf of the South Lincolnshire Show, formerly Baston Show, to the Lincolnshire Rural Support Network following a very successful show earlier in May this year in Grimsthorpe Park.
Teresa Measures, show treasurer, handed a the cheque to LRSN Vice Chairman, David Creasey of Hanthorpe and caseworker for the south of the county, Lee Schofield.
South Lincs Show is a local horse and pony show which has been running for over 45 years. Nowadays it takes place towards the end of May within the beautiful surroundings of Grimsthorpe Park.
There are about 50 classes held on the day within three show rings, covering a variety of types, sizes and discipline.
The show is normally able to make a worthwhile donation to local charities and recent beneficiaries are The Lincolnshire Air Ambulance and Riding for the Disabled.
The LRSN is a charity which provides pastoral and practical support to farming and rural people during periods of anxiety, stress and problems relating to their families and businesses.
