Guilsfield Show is self funding and relies on the enormous support of our local community and show visitors to continue each year. Our show costs are covered by our entrance fees, profit from our social functions and the generous support of our sponsors. All of our committee members are voluntary and we are also supported by many members of our local community.
In addition, Guilsfield Show aims to raise money for charitable causes each year and part of the Presidents' role is to nominate the charities for that year. Our 2023 President Gaynor Hughes has announced the 2023 show will support the below charities.
The League of Friends was set up in 1961 and since then has raised in excess of £20 million to improve and maintain an exemplary quality of patient care at the Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital NHS Foundation Trust (RJAH).
The RJAH is a world class centre of excellence for the treatment and care of orthopaedics. The Friends give essential support for patients, relatives and staff by providing services, organising volunteers, funding equipment, issuing grants and supporting wellbeing for RJAH. From providing toothbrushes to funding an endoscopic surgical kit, we are at the heart of RJAH as a good friend should be.
