Buckham Fair To Support Air Ambulance

Martin Clunes and James

11:15am 14th February 2014

Proceeds from Buckham Fair put on by Martin Clunes at his home will go to Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance this year.

The event takes place on Sunday 17th August.

The Air Ambulance was a beneficiary in 2011 and received £34,000 to help respond to emergencies across the two counties.

Martin and his wife Philippa started organising the fair back in 2008 a year after moving to their farm near Beaminster.

According to an ancient charter, owners of the land can hold a fair each year.

As keen horse, pony and dog lovers they also wanted to include a small pony and dog show.

The classes have grown year on year and the fair has raised £112,000 for charity to date.
