We’re supporting these charities
Thames Valley Air Ambulance provides life-saving medical care across Berkshire, Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire. Each day, an average of three people will find themselves in a life-threatening situation that requires urgent, high-quality medical treatment.
It costs £2.2 million to keep the service flying per year. When you or your loved one’s life is at risk the air ambulance delivers a unique life-saving service wherever and whenever you need it.
They receive no Government funding and are not supported by the National Lottery. Your support will help keep them flying night and day, 365 days a year.
Alzheimers Dementia Support ‘ADS’ is a charity which offers constructive practical guidance and a wide range of services to help people in the local community whose lives are directly or indirectly affected by Dementia. They strive to make a difference by helping those affected cope better whilst giving them the opportunity to experience a little joy and laughter in their difficult lives.
They provide fun and stimulating days out for those in the early stages of dementia, drop in centres and lunch clubs, all with the aim of offering some fun and laughter and an opportunity to meet new people and exchange experiences.
Thank you to our supporters

Kelperland Vets are kindly sponsoring our Novelty Dog Show and will have children’s tables and chairs for the little ones to sit and colour in pictures relating to animals and the vet. They will be available 4.-4.30 for a QA session. Simon also plans to bring along objects and examples to do with the veterinary world, so it should be an interesting and different afternoon.

The Bean Car Club and the Uxbridge and District Classic Car Society come with a fabulous display of vintage vehicles for people to enjoy.

Enchanted Players will be providing characters that sing, tell stories and model balloons, adding a bit of magic to the afternoon! Look out for them and be sure to say hello.
Too many to mention!
And of course, a very big thank you to all the individuals who turn out to help us not only on the day but also for the set-up and take down.
There are so many people and organisations that support us and offer help (too many to mention here) but a heartfelt thank you from all of us to all of you. The fair wouldn’t happen without you!
