The Southern Region 2010 Show was held at the Hazlemere Community Centre, near High Wycombe in November. A popular show for Racing Pigeons and Show birds, it was organised by Claire Mills, Ron Lacey, Hazel Marsh, Ray Harris, Peter Gretton and committee members.
Around 670 birds were entered by competitors from all parts of England & Wales. A total of £2,200 was raised for the Sue Ryder Hospice at Nettlebed, the nominated charity chosen this year by the committee. Sue Ryder Care is a national charity providing health and social care services in local communities. The total of amount of money was raised from the Show, a Telephone Auction of Gift birds, a donation from Geoff Batten and the late Bill Chapman.
Thanks go out to the Show committee, fanciers who donated birds, volunteer helpers and competitors.
This Southern Region Show 2011 will be held again at Hazlemere Community Centre on the 26th November. Donations from Clubs or Individuals or Gift birds for the auction will be welcome.
Thanks again. It's nice that fanciers give generously to charity.
