For the fourth consecutive year, Nick and Claire Bragg of Frogmary Green Farm hosted a beef dinner in honour of Great British Beef Week. The event raised
Over the years, the Somerset-based farm has raised around £8,000 with its annual beef week dinner.
Jilly Greed, co-founder of Ladies in Beef and a driving force behind beef week, was the guest speaker. She talked about the importance of beef production for the farming industry and the health benefits of eating beef.
NFU president and Ladies in Beef co-founder Minette Batters recorded a beef week message, which was played for the guests. R.A.B.I chairman Malcolm Thomas and deputy chairman James Orme were also in attendance.
Dinner was served to 120 guests. Local butchers Bonners of Ilminster donated the beef, while the potatoes came straight from Frogmary Green Farm.
After dinner, Charles Clarke from Greenslade Taylor Hunt led an auction, which alone raised £2,000. Among the many lots was a trip to Lundy Island for two and a day’s shooting at Westermill Syndicate Shoot.
Pam Wills, regional manager for the South West, said: “It’s events like this that put the ‘fun’ into fundraising! It wouldn’t be possible without the incredible support of Claire & Nick and their team.”
