Young Lives vs Cancer flowers  to feature at Chale Show


The organisers of the Chale Show have agreed to an entry in the Floral Art Class entitled, Young Lives vs Cancer.

The arrangements can be pink, black and white and the Chale Show are kindly making a £10 donation to the charity Cancer and Leukaemia in Childhood (CLIC) Sargent for every entry.

Last year, the Chale Show donated £10,000 to local and national charities, as well as supporting local horticulture. CLIC Sargent has been supported by The Chale Show, as it is a charity that helps children and young people with cancer on the Island.

Local CLIC Sargent volunteer, Susan Earley, said: “As a family, we have always taken part in the show. It’s such a fantastic day out for all the family. CLIC Sargent is a charity that has helped my family, so I am very grateful to the Chale Show organisers for including a Young Lives vs Cancer class. I am really looking forward to seeing the entries and hope that lots of people enter this class.”

Andrew Woodford, Show Manager of The Chale Show, said: “I am really proud of the fact that the Chale Horticultural Society is able to make donations from The Chale Show to a number of charities that help local residents and pleased to support CLIC Sargent once again. We are really looking forward to the 2019 show. This is the 93rd Chale Show and so glad that visitors really continue to enjoy the show.”

The Chale Show will be held on the weekend of August 3 and 4. To enter an arrangement, please email thechaleshow@hotmail.com before 6pm on July 29. Further information please may be found at www.chaleshow.co.uk
