The Bourne Show last year raised more than £10,000 for local charities and good causes.

The show which was held in July 2023 provided a platform for 40 charity stalls to fundraise at the event. Over 5,000 people turned out to enjoy the day and because of their generosity, the Big Bourne Bash was a huge success for fundraising.

This year’s Big Bourne Bash is still being planned but last year’s featured live sets from Easy Tiger and local DJ Meg Ainsworth.

Bourne Show Chair Roger Goscomb said: “We are thrilled to be able to donate so much to local charities and good causes again this year. Being able to support our local community is at the heart of what we do. Sincere thanks to our committee, our volunteers, stallholders, and visitors.”

The show committee which is run entirely by volunteers were delighted to be able to make donations to local charities and groups.

Recipients this year included Bourne WI, Brambleton Community Fridge, Disability Challengers, Farnham Assist, Farnham Food Bank, Rachel Morris Fundraising, Smile Sleigh, St Martin's Church, The Great Bourne Community, Weydon School Student Support and Pastoral Team and Woodlarks campsite.

Mr Goscomb added: “We look forward to welcoming back one and all for the daytime Show and the evening Bash on Saturday, July 6 2024".

This year’s show will be held on the village green as it has for over 90 years and there is still plenty of time for stallholders to apply to take part in the popular attraction.

Stalls are a mixture of charity and commercial alongside fun rides and live entertainment meaning there is something for everyone.

There is even an archive of the show over the years on the website.
