Raising cash from computering bygones
Chris Hughes, organiser of this year's Wakefield Show, has called on people to donate unwanted computer kit to the event's charity stall. Money raised from the stand will go towards the Wakefield Hospice and the show website says they've raised over ten thousand pounds so far, from previous shows.
"The 9th Wakefield Show on the weekend of 15th and 16th May at Thornes Park Athletics Stadium, will once again have a charity stall, raising money primarily for Wakefield Hospice," writes Chris in an email.
"It will once again be a large four open sided stand with we hope enough space for the donated items. People can either bring items they wish to give to the charity stall on the day or arrange to send or deliver them in advance to the Wakefield Hospice who are providing some storage facilities till the show."
Advance tickets for the show are now available and don't forget the prize draws either. The event is, incidentally, sponsored by APDL, Virtual Acorn, Stuart Tyrrell Developments, MW Software, Finneybank, Castle Technology, Spellings Computer Services, Richard Hallas and Crawford Printers.
