A silent auction with lots that include a lesson with Helen Tredwell, a morning with the Funnells and an evening at the races with Channel 4’s Derek Thompson will be hosted at Bicester and Finmere Show this weekend (6-7 August).

Funds raised will go to the Back Up Trust and Spinal Research.

As well as showing classes and top showjumping, the show also boasts an annual jockeys’ showjumping competition, which has attracted top names including AP McCoy and Sam Thomas in the past.
