Pembrokeshire County Show

Prostate Cymru has a strong presence in the county of Pembrokeshire thanks to the dedication of the Pembrokeshire Friends of Prostate Cymru group in the area. From Tuesday 14th August to Thursday 16th August Prostate Cymru attended the Pembrokeshire County Show in Haverfordwest, sharing a stand with Gravells Kia, as part of the charity’s summer roadshow raising awareness of prostate issues across Wales.

The Pembrokeshire County Show is a highly regarded event with a long tradition. It has close connections to the local agricultural and rural community, and is a favourite day out in the summer calendar for thousands of people, both from Pembrokeshire and further afield. Prostate Cymru was the nominated charity of 2018 Show President Brian Harries, the enthusiastic Chairman of the Pembrokeshire Friends of Prostate Cymru group.

Prostate Cymru’s Head of Awareness Dai John joined members of the Pembrokeshire Friends of Prostate Cymru and volunteers to speak to attendees about prostate health and related diseases such as benign prostate disease and prostate cancer. In addition to raising awareness, the team caught up with a number of fundraisers from the county including Meurig Harries who drove a tractor through Wales and Ireland in August for the charity.

Headline attractions at the show included Joseph’s Amazing Camels and an Irish sheaf throwing competition in addition to the usual competitions such as cattle, pigs, goats, horses, poultry and dog agility. There was also a number of trade stands featuring local businesses and organisations, classic car displays, farrier demonstrations, falconry displays, axe racing, indoor go-karting and family friendly entertainment.
