Meet Cameron Stokes

Cameron Stokes joined the YKC when he was young and these days still takes part in breed showing and handling. We caught up with him to find out what he liked most about his experience volunteering with the YKC.

How long have you been in the YKC?

I have been a member of the YKC since I was quite young when I started showing when I was around 10. I have been involved in volunteering with the YKC for around 3 years now.

What activities have you taken part in?

I regularly take part in breed showing and handling.

What do you do for work?

I am trainee accountant.

What do you study at school?

At school I study various subjects. When I went to university my main focus was on studying accountancy, as that’s what I wanted to do in life.

Have you competed at Crufts, if so what was your favourite part?

Yes, I have competed at Crufts, just about all the time that I have been showing. It is hard to say what is my favourite part because it is all so good, but if I had to pick it would have to be showing in the breed ring.

What do you do with your dog out side of your activity?

For the last four years I have been judging a few times each year across many different breeds in the gundog group.

What is your favourite part about the YKC? 

My favourite part of the YKC is competing in the finals at Crufts and doing volunteer work with YKC at events.

Have you volunteered for the YKC? If yes, what is your favourite part about volunteering?

It is hard to say what is my most favourite thing about volunteering is because it is all really good. If I would have to choose one thing, it would be volunteering at Crufts and the social aspect that volunteering brings with it.

If you could offer any advice to someone wanting to join the YKC what would you say?

I would say it is totally worthwhile joining up to. There are a different range of events that are on offer to members and activities that you can get involved in with your dogs. It offers a great chance to meet people your own age from around the country.
