Visit to Chatsworth House - July 2016
This was a very successful visit and made very memorable by the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire hosting our lunch. The visit to Chatsworth was rounded off by a visit to the Barlow kennels in the evening by kind permission of the Joint Masters. The whole day raised just over £2,300 which is most valued and equally as important it was a thoroughly enjoyable day for our Honorary Members.
Cheltenham Evening Hunter Chase Race Meeting - April 2016
A regular on our Social Calendar, this race meeting was as popular as ever. The silent auction had a steady flow of activity with the usual flurry at 7.55pm! Mark Hill and his team from Moore Allen and Innocent were as generous as ever with their time and enthusiasm and we are most grateful to them for their long standing support. The whole evening raised over £23,000 of which over £13,000 is allocated to the Hunt Servants' Fund and the remainder to the HSBS.
2015 Christmas Cards and Fairs
We had three lovely cards kindly donated by HRH The Prince of Wales, Daniel Crane and Mary Ann Rogers, all were as popular as ever. Colin Studd very kindly took our cards and books to various Hunt Fairs and in total £1,114 was raised.
