The Beaufort has a thriving Supporters Club with around 2,000 paying members and more than that attending functions. The annual membership fee is £10.00 well
within the grasp of everybody. It is made up of individuals from every walk of life imaginable and all age groups. They hold over twenty gatherings per annum.
For some members of the hunt club these gatherings and those run by the hunt are at the centre of their social life and many attend each occasion without
fail. The hunt club regularly donates money to charity and their present policy is to give more numerous but smaller donations to local charities rather than
fewer but larger donations to national charities. This gives a greater local commitment and interest and they have found that people therefore give

Terrier Show and Kennels Open Day
The Beaufort Hunt Supporters Club Terrier Show and Kennels Open Day took place at the end of July in the Park at Badminton. With classes ranging from terriers of all types but also novelty classes for all the family young and old and then the chance to meet and hear about the Beaufort Hounds - this is always a popular day that culminates in the fun and fiercely contested terrier racing.
Cycle Hound Exercise
An early start from the Beaufort Kennels at Badminton saw 75 cyclists of all ages, some little, some large, some racing fit and some chasing fitness going on hound exercise with new joint master Matt Ramsden, and new KH Nick Hopkins and staff. At the finish a bath for some in the famous Lake followed by a BBQ breakfast back at base.
Hunt gives £1000 to Air Ambulance
Wiltshire Air Ambulance benefitted to the tune of £1000 when it received a cheque from the Beaufort Hunt Supporters Club on Saturday 21st November at a meet of the Hunt in Badminton Park. The money raised came from the proceeds of the highly successful and popular Beaufort Hunt Horse Show that is held annually at Badminton in the summer.
The Beaufort, understanding only too well the enormous value of the Air Ambulance Service, whether it be for a riding or farming accident, or for a medical emergency in a rural area, regularly supports this wonderful charity .
In addition a cheque for £200 was also donated from the Beaufort Hunt Horse Show to Horse World, the Bristol based charity that rescues and rehomes horses, ponies and donkeys.
