Galloway Country Fair pledges support for local children’s charity cash for kids
Cash for Kids has been named as the official charity partner of Galloway Country Fair for the third year running.
The Fair organisers have pledged to donate all of the takings from programme sales alongside any cash donations over the weekend, to raise vital funds to support the charity’s work throughout the local area.
Representatives from Westsound Cash for Kids will also be on site at this year’s event providing activities and competitions for children to take part in throughout the weekend.
Galloway Country Fair has raised nearly £4,000 for Cash for Kids in recent years thanks to programme sales and generous donations from visitors, and organisers are hoping to provide another welcome boost thanks to generous Fair attendees.
Anna Fergusson, Drumlanrig Castle and Country Estate Manager, said: “We’re delighted to renew our partnership with Cash for Kids by naming it our official charity partner for the third consecutive year. I’m sure the charity activity will be a great addition to the Fair and we can raise a great sum for the cause.”
Westsound Cash for Kids aims to support young people and children in Dumfries and Galloway by providing extra care and guidance to those disadvantaged in the community.
Debbie Fraser, Regional Charity Manager said: “We are delighted to have been chosen as the charity partner of the Galloway Country Fair for another year. With poverty at its highest for years our applications for grants are at an all time high and all money raised from this great day will be distributed across Dumfries and Galloway to help support children living in the most disadvantaged areas throughout school holidays.”
Set in the grounds of the stunning Drumlanrig Castle and Country Estate, Galloway Country Fair will take place on Saturday 17 August, from 10am to 6pm and Sunday 18 August, from 10am to 5pm.
