To the Rescue, Heart of Britain Benefit Show

Global Entertainments in association with Heart of Britain-Devon is staging a two day charity weekend at Westpoint Showground, Exeter on Sat 27th and Sun 28th October.

The purpose of this event is to raise money for farmers and allied businesses that have suffered severe hardship during the recent foot and mouth epidemic.

Even now as life returns to normal, the effects of this disaster are still to be seen in the rural communities. The public as a whole would believe that this outbreak and the hardships it brought are now history.

This is not the case, as can be seen throughout the rural communities of Britain. Farmers with generations of tradition are now facing wipeout due to the lack of any sort of rescue package being forthcoming from this government.

With this apathy in mind Global Entertainments have brought together victims of the disaster who have been supporting the Heart of Devon campaign.

The two day event will cater for all ages with a vast array of activities and stands. This will really be a beacon of light after the months of darkness for Devon.

Plans are being laid for an outstanding show. (watch this space).

Applications for trade stands are being taken at #30 a day, we are especially encouraging local traders who have been struggling to keep their business thriving, concessions are available for traders who are genuinely in need. Catering stands will be by negotiation, as will fairground attractions. We are appealing for trade sponsorship from large companies and ask that these companies contact Paul Cassidy at Global Entertainments.

All proceeds from the event are to benefit those who have been hardest hit by the foot and mouth crisis so please give it your fullest support. Over the coming weeks could you please help by giving the show as much coverage as you can?

Thank you,

Lisa Connolly
