Open Show 24th November 2012 (In aid of the Rescue Fund)

While not hitting the heights of last year the Rescue Show raised £454.00 for the Midlands and Northern Rhodesian Ridgeback Support and Rescue Trust. But this is not all!

The Cake, made and donated annually by the Bates Family, failed to appear! No, no, this was not because it hadn't been made, or indeed iced with usual precision and perfection. It was merely because of unforeseen circumstances, which prevented its creators and of course couriers from attending the show! However, the cake will be transported with all necessary security, to LKA. There to be sold, piece by piece, at the most extortionate price we can exact from each and every one of you. Of course all proceeds of this benevolent extortion will be donated to the trust for the benefit of the hounds!

Thanks to all who gave so generously with donations both on the day and with their entries. Once again thanks to Liz & Paul Storey's generosity in donating the wonderful hamper of wine as first prize for the raffle and to Jayne and Ron Lloyd for once again providing the day's refreshments free of charge.

The show was held at Chesterton Community Centre, Chesterton, Newcastle-under-Lyme where our judges were Mr J Thirlwell (Dogs) and Mr M Armstrong (Bitches)
