Event charities benefit to the tune of more than £2,700


A grand total of £2,760 was raised for charity thanks to the generosity of those who attended the 2016 Country Range Group Event.

The money was raised in two ways – £500 was donated by Country Range Group as part of the exhibition competition, while the remainder was raised through a raffle at the Gala Dinner.

We selected four charities with different themes to benefit from money raised at the 2016 Event. The themes these four charities support are the elderly, children with life-limiting conditions, young people with learning disabilities, and UK military veterans. You can read more about each charity below, and by following the links to their websites.
