An inspirational evening celebrating the achievements of farming women in Cumbria raised £500.
The event included speeches from Dorthe Pratt of the Sedbergh Soap Company and Hannah Jackson, a first generation farmer also known as the Red Sherpherdess. New NFU President Minette Batters, the first female leader in 110 years, also attended.
Georgina Lamb, regional manager for the North West, said: “I’d like to thank Appleby NFU for choosing to raise funds for R.A.B.I at this event. It was inspiring to see all these women come together to celebrate their work in farming.”
