fundraising at Masham Sheep Fair
Masham Sheep Fair is held to raise money for charity. Over the last 30 years we have raised £158,700 for charity.
This year we are raising money for Yorkshire Air Ambulance and The Friarage MRI Scanner Appeal.
Last year we gave £11,500 to local charities: £9,700 to Yorkshire Air Ambulance ad the remainder to other local organisations who helped with the Sheep Fair.
After the 2013 Sheep Fair we were able to present a cheque for £8,500 to Yorkshire Air Ambulance. A further £1,000 had been distributed as follows: £500 to Masham YFC, £300 to Masham School, £100 to Mowbray School and £100 to Masham Junior Sports.
In previous years we've supported Macmillan Nurses, Jennyruth Workshops, the Special Baby Care Unit at the Friarage Hospital Northallerton, Marie Curie, Alzheimer's Society and Dales School. and other local charities.
