Creslow Manor, the former grazing ground for the Royal Table, dates back to the 13th century and now belongs to R.A.B.I supporters Brian and Linda Lear. At this year’s R.A.B.I AGM / conference, Linda scooped the South Central regional prize for her efforts organising this popular annual summer event. It’s certainly grown in stature from humble beginnings – the first one took place in 2010 and was hosted under a couple of tents.
This year’s cream tea fundraiser was arguably the busiest yet, with the marquee filling up quickly. Good weather meant drinks could be enjoyed on the lawn whilst admiring the views of the historic house. Members of R.A.B.I’s Buckinghamshire committee ran a raffle and an auction, with some great prizes up for grabs, including a beautiful painting of a cow. Guests were also asked to ‘guess the number of balloons in a car’ for the chance to win a professional valet, courtesy of Aylesbury Honda.
Jenni Green, R.A.B.I regional manager for South Central, said: “As a charity, we rely heavily on funds generated by events such as this one and we’re lucky to have such a talented and hard-working group of fundraisers right here in Buckinghamshire.”
