This year Dorset County Show Secretary, Will Hyde, will be running the London Marathon to fundraise for this year's Show Charity: The Splash Appeal.
We are aiming to raise £1500 by 26th April, when Will will be travelling to London to take part in the iconic annual event. The Splash Appeal is part of the local charity Diverse Abilities which supports families and people of all ages affected by physical and learning disabilities. The Splash Appeal was developed to help increase provision of hydratherapy sessions for all who need them. At this time, Diverse Abilities only has one small pool within their specialist school for children, so cannot continue sessions when they become adults .
"Our vision is to transform the therapy offered to adults with profound and life-long disabilities in Dorset.
The Splash Appeal aims to build dedicated therapy pool to provide life-changing water-based therapy."
With just a few weeks left, please donate what you can and send your good luck wishes to Will!
