The 1840 Education Fund was set up to commemorate 175 years of the Dorchester Agricultural Society, which was formed in 1840.
The 1840 Education Fund is a restricted fund solely to meet the following Charitable aims:
“To provide education for schoolchildren within the county of Dorset to gain knowledge in agriculture, horticulture and other rural enterprises”
Initially the fund will finance transport to and from a number of farms which will be dedicated to providing farm tours; these farms will have been vetted to ensure they are compliant with Health & Safety and other regulations for school visits. This can be expanded and developed as funds allow.
The Show Board and Trustees have directed that this fund is ring fenced with a separate bank account and used only for the Educational purposes described above.
