In November, nine charities will be presented a total of £53,000 from the 2016 Sherborne Castle Classic & Supercar event.
Organisers, The Rotary Clubs of Sherborne Castles and Yeo Vale are delighted with the success of this year’s show which has achieved a record sum for donation to charity. Since the clubs have been running the show, a total of £88,000 has been donated to charity.
Presidents of the Show and Owners of the Sherborne Castle Estate, Edward and Maria Wingfield Digby say –
‘We are thrilled that the Show held in July has been a huge success and is able to donate such an astonishing amount to charity from a one-day event.
As Presidents it gives us enormous pleasure to host this event, which is not only unique in the South West but has evolved into an occasion that appeals to owners of an eclectic mix of treasured Classics in addition to fabulous and priceless Supercars.
By attracting in excess of 10,000 visitors and having the focus on raising funds for Charity the Show exactly matches the ethos of the Castle Estate in being able to share its wonderful location and facilities with the public at large.
This event goes from strength to strength and Sherborne Castle Estate is thrilled it will again be staged at this venue on 15th/16th July 2017, when the first two-day Show will take place’.
