The 2012 Memorial Ploughing Match was held on Sunday 1st April at New Wolverton Farm, Shorwell, by kind permission of Mr and Mrs Williams.  This was the fourth year of the match.
  A total of 90 ploughmen all paid a minimum donation of £5 to enter the match and the entry fees came to £746.  The fantastic weather on the day encouraged many family, friends and general public to join us and meant record takings from donations on the gate when people came in, sale of raffle tickets and "The Leverets" selling tea, coffee and cakes (ALL the money which "The Leverets" took was donated to the EMH).

At the dinner on Saturday 7th April, 

a cheque for £5,500.00 was presented to the Earl Mountbatten Hospice.

  We do not give prize money at the MPM but each of the winners are given an Earl Mountbatten Hospice Lottery Gift Voucher.  This gives them the chance of winning a prize in the EMH Lottery.  Last year this Lottery raised over £100,000 for the EMH.  Our total prize money gift vouchers was £1105.00.  This means that a massive £6605.00 has been given to the EMH.  

  Photos have been downloaded to Photobox Gallery for you to look at and also order online.  A proportion of the money from any photo's ordered will go to the Earl Mountbatten Hospice.
