The World's Biggest Coffee Morning ...
CURRENT TOTAL ... £2,070!! Once again the highest grossing event in our region :)
Returned to Sykehouse Arena on Saturday 13 October! Our final total will not be known for another week or so as money is still arriving, but we look on target to beat last year's total! We had a fabulous day at the Arena, helped by the glorious sunny weather. For the first time we organised an invitational Puissance, where five locally based riders went head to head to see who dare go highest for charity! Phillip Curtis (White Spirit M), Mark Stubbs (Bioforce), Judy Blackmore (Temple Wotsit), Chantelle Duggan (Grangewood Dynamo) and Angela Tate (Anko) took up the challenge. Mark and Judy shared first place with their valiant attempt at 1m 80 - a fantastic day. Thank you to everyone who came along to support this amazing charity, and donated prizes for both the auction and tombola. Loads of pics on our Photos Page as well as on Facebook!

Wednesday 26 September 2012: A further charitable donation of £500 has been presented to the RNLI, represented by one of our BS Judges, Mr Frank Hiorns.
Throughout the show seasons ALL of your first aid contributions are donated to charity. The Sykehouse staff choose the charities, generally based on personal experiences or those of friends and family. Over the past two years we have made donations to the Yorkshire Air Ambulance, Embrace, Macmillan Cancer Support and most recently we donated £1600 to Doncaster Royal Infirmary's Gynaecology Oncology Department to aid in upgrading the family room. These £1's add up rapidly and we take great pride in passing the monies raised on to such worthy charities.
