The Ashford Valley Tickham Hunt need to raise a substantial amount of money each year in order to maintain the Hunt. Funds are raised through the various events which are organised by the ‘stalwarts of the Hunt’ who work tirelessly throughout the year.
Fund raising and the weather play an enormous part in the survival of the Ashford Valley Tickham Hunt, the weather we have no control over but fund raising we do,
Events held throughout the year to raise funds include the annual AVTH Horse and Fun Dog Show, social evenings, garden parties and our major fund raiser the annual Point to Point meeting held every Easter Saturday.
Volunteers of all abilities are always needed at events and your help would be very much appreciated.

A few years ago, we introduced the ASHFORD VALLEY TICKHAM HUNT HOUND CLUB whereby supporters could sponsor a hound or hounds for the sum of £40 per year per hound and the money raised went to help cover the costs involved with our pack of hounds, 25 couples (50 hounds).
As with everything our costs continually rise each year and to just feed our hounds it costs a minimum of £600 per month plus vet bills for annual injections, worming etc. plus illness, accidents and there are other costs involved too on an annual basis.
The reason for this letter is to remind everyone about the Hound Club and how it works. We request that if you would like to sponsor a hound you set up a direct debit for either one annual payment of £40 or two annual payments for £20 or four annual payments of £10 and that is all you have to do – obviously if you wish to do more than one hound you are very welcome to !! Every year we have badges on sale and if you sponsor a hound we donate you your hound badge
If you feel you would like to sponsor one of our hounds please set up your direct debit, details of our bank are below, and ensure you put your name and HC as a reference and let me know either by email or letter that you have joined and I can then arrange to forward your badge to you when they are available.
I look forward to seeing you at our summer fund raising events during 2019.
