Polo event Raises Cash for Homeless Charity

Fine and country polo

A recent meeting at Dallas Burston Polo Club proved to be a successful fundraising event at which £5,000 was raised for the Fine & Country Foundation, a charity that combats the causes at the root of homelessness.

A record-breaking crowd of 5,500 people rolled up for the ever-popular Fine & Country Gold Cup at Dallas Burston Polo Club in Southam.

More than just a day of high octane polo, the 600-acre site was lined with a range of exhibitors and, for car enthusiasts, there was a dazzling array of impressive automobiles including La Ferrari, Rolls Royce, Lamborghini, James Bond’s Aston Martin DB5 and even a noddy car for younger visitors.

There was also a selection of mouth-watering food stations, but visitors looking for something a little more special had the option of afternoon tea or a sandwich box - both of which proved a huge hit and sold out on the day.

"We are delighted to say that once again the Fine & Country Gold Club was a resounding success for all who attended,” said Director of Operations at Dallas Burston Polo Club Major Richard Carney MBE.

"The weather was kind to us which meant there were more people taking advantage of the picnic boxes and enjoying lunch in front of some truly magnificent polo. In fact, the picnic boxes, which were sold with a grandstand ticket, sold out quite quickly, proving just how popular they are.

"It was wonderful to see so many people generously donating money to such a worthwhile cause. As a key part of the local community, we believe it's our role to not only provide entertainment to our neighbours but to also help boost the coffers of some amazing and important charities across the region.”

Fine & Country also coincided with Pina Colada week and to mark this occasion, the DBPC team served up a delicious Pina Colada Malibu cocktail to its adult visitors.
