We are delighted to announce that ‘Dogs for the Disabled’ will be supporting the show this year with demonstrations in the Main and Dog Show rings.
Dogs for the Disabled is an innovative charity that brings together dogs and people with a wide range of disabilities and conditions.
Services offered include:
- The training of specialist assistance dogs for adults and children with physical disabilities and children with autism.
- PAWS – supporting families with children with autism through a pet dog programme.
- Community-based dog support programmes working with schools and other charities.
Dogs for the Disabled receives no government funding and is wholly reliant on voluntary fundraising to further its work. Details on www.dogsforthedisabled.org
Volunteers are required to help put on the biggest annual event in Egham.
The Show Managaer has many duties that are required to be completed prior to the show from erecting pedestrian walkways to positioning tables and chairs around the showground. Also the grass is given a rough cut prior to the event but in certain areas, such as inside the marquees, the grass must be cut shorter. This is the sort of work that must be done and the adage 'many hands make light work' is so true. If you can spare even just a couple of hours I would be most grateful.
However, it's not just the 2 days of the show where assistance is wanted. Apart from the many meetings held all year round to make the show the wonderful event it is, the show organising starts about 2 weeks before and then finishes about a week after the bank holiday weekend. The Egham Royal Show is looking for volunteers to get the showground in order and assist with various duties over about a 3 week period starting 15th August and ending around 5th September.
You don't have to do 3 weeks solid, just a few hours here and there will make the committees life much easier!
