Bob Owen Charity Trial

This annual event was first held at Home Farm, Tong, now known as Parkwood, in 1988 so the 2018 running was the 31st anniversary event and raised £1815.
Bob Owen was a stalwart of the club and did a lot to support the ACU Benevolent Fund so the trial was named in his memory. 
It is strongly supported by the ACU and because of that the Ben Fund has been the key beneficiary since that first trial but other charities have also benefitted including Children in Need, various cancer charities, Yorkshire Air Ambulance, Royal British Legion and MIND.
The total raised and donated to date, following the 2018 event, is £59892.
