The Bournemouth North Rotary Club’s Donkey Derby and Dog Show, held annually in aid of good causes across Dorset, saw thousands visit Pelhams Park in Kinson on Bank Holiday Monday.

Once again live music was provided by Druitts Solicitors, sponsoring Poole Borough Band to play at the fete.   And with stalls, games, snacks and a series of donkey races around the field, there was something for all the family to enjoy.   This year once again they were fortunate with good weather and several thousand people attended with Rotarians selling the programmes at the gate.

The end result is that just over £8,000 was raised.  This money will be used to support local schools, youth clubs, old people’s groups and many other local charities. You can be assured that we will put this money to the best possible use in supporting many local causes.

To be involved in the fun in 2016, the Donkey Derby and Dog Show will be on Monday 2 May 2016.  For more information on Bournemouth North Rotary Club see their website
