This year’s Scarva Sham Fight has been marked with a special film which was broadcast online at 11.15am on Tuesday, July 14 – the exact moment the parade was due to get under way!
After the “Thirteenth” celebrations were cancelled this year due to the coronavirus pandemic, members of Sir Knight Alfred Buller Memorial RBP 1000 produced an hour-long feature film so that Sir Knights and their supporters could enjoy the sights and sounds of the Sham Fight in the comfort of their own homes!
The film is packed with parade footage, hymns, historical features and religious messages – and is proving to be popular online.
A charity which is close to the hearts of the Sham Fight organisers is St John Ambulance, which provides medical cover at the Sham Fight each year. A Just Giving page allowing people to donate online in aid of St John Ambulance can be found at www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/royal-thirteenth-1?utm_term=x4rze28VE.
