Salisbury Hospice Charity announces new charity patron as it counts down to the Salisbury Summer Fair

Salisbury Hospice Charity has announced the Countess of Pembroke as their new charity patron.

The Hospice Charity feels they have valuable support and enthusiasm from the Countess as they continue to grow and raise essential funds for Salisbury Hospice.

The Countess said about her new role, “It was a great honour and privilege to have been asked to become Patron of Salisbury Hospice Charity.

“I am humbled by the incredible work carried out by the Hospice, and I am inspired by the profound impact it has on the lives of patients and their families during their most challenging moments.

“The charity’s commitment to ensuring comfort, dignity and solace to those in need is truly commendable.

“I’m delighted to be opening the Salisbury Summer Fair this year and look forward to welcoming everyone to the fun filled day, which raises an incredible amount for the hospice.”

There are just two weeks left to purchase discounted tickets to the Salisbury Summer Fair (formally known as The Wessex Country Fair), which takes place on Saturday 5th August in the beautiful grounds of the Wilton House Estate.

With live music featuring Izzii Moorland, Navy Larks and Sticky Toffee Jazz on the music stage, to name a few, have-a-go children’s activities, like Kidz Love Fit sessions, climbing wall, archery, plus an exciting treasure trail.

Not to mention the camels, Tumble Tots and Chuffley, the miniature steam engine and a whole village dedicated to children’s activities and entertainment, there will be plenty of fun and laughter for the whole family.

The ever-popular K&H Falconry returns to entertain you with their incredible Barn Owl performances in the main arena alongside Star Cast, Paws For Thought display and the ultimate Hobby Horse Derby.

Join in on the morning or afternoon duck race on the River Nadder. Will you be cheering your duck to the finish line?! 

Take a moment to walk down memory lane, with a trophy of stunning cars expertly cared for over the years or pop along to the Land Rover village, which is appearing this year whilst celebrating the 75th anniversary of the iconic Defender!

New for 2023 is a new village called The Retreat dedicated to your health and well-being, offering an incredible timetable of classes, workshops, talks and treatments throughout the day. Limited spaces are available. Pre-booking encouraged.

Natalie Pester, Marketing & Communications Officer for Salisbury Hospice Charity, added, “We are very grateful for the kind generosity of the local community and many businesses who are supporting us this year to make the Salisbury Summer Fair feasible.

I would particularly like to thank our headline sponsor Hendy Group for their valuable support and look forward to seeing the community come together to raise vital funds for Salisbury Hospice”
