Kenilworth Show backing armed forces charity


The Kenilworth Show takes place on June 7

The organisers behind popular agricultural event the Kenilworth Show are helping the armed forces after backing the charity Tickets For Troops ahead of next month’s event.

Kenilworth and District Agricultural Society (KADAS), who organise Coventry and Warwickshire’s biggest one-day agricultural event, has generously provided 100 free tickets to the event on Saturday, June 7 to the charity.

Tickets For Troops specialise in rewarding currently serving personnel and those medically discharged from military duty with tickets to an event of their choice.

This year’s Kenilworth Show features a range of entertaining rural attractions for all the family, including a countryside area which includes the chance to try air rifle shooting and clay shooting, gun dog scurrying and demonstrations with working dogs.

Veronica Bamford, director of operations for Tickets For Troops, is thankful to KADAS for its generous donation.

Veronica said: “This is a significant year for our UK Armed Forces, as we remember the 100th anniversary of World War One and we are absolutely delighted the Kenilworth Show will be supporting our country’s marvellous servicemen and women.”

Kenilworth Show director Charlie Weetman said the show committee was more than happy to support the charity.

“It was a pleasure to arrange for 100 of our hard-working troops to come and join us on June 7,” he said.

“Everyone in the country is really proud of our servicemen and women and we were delighted to offer them the chance to come and spend the day with us.”
