Georgina Masson, a student from Northumberland, raised £150 at a car boot sale. She ran the stall by herself, finding new homes for her unwanted items, as part of her Duke of Edinburgh qualification.
“I decided to fund raise for R.A.B.I as it is an important aspect of life in Northumberland,” said Georgina. “The agricultural industry plays a crucial role in providing jobs and food to those in the North East.”
Georgina revealed that her older brother also raised funds for R.A.B.I, which inspired her to pick the charity. “My brother raised funds for R.A.B.I several years ago after freak April snow storms killed many lambs.
“Farming is challenging and there is little financial support to help farmers in trouble. Those that do work hard to produce the nation’s food may sometimes need help. R.A.B.I provides the necessary help that farmers and their colleagues need.”
