R.A.B.I Regional Manager for the North West, Georgina Lamb (below), said: “Despite having to deploy the emergency poncho and two extra marquees, 65 people attended a fantastic cream tea event at Dove Cottage Nursery and Gardens in Halifax.”
Guests were greeted with top quality British Strawberries, cream and a glazz of bubbly in the spectacular gardens with panoramic views of Shibden Valley and Chelsea Valley.
Georgina said: “We’d like to thank Stephen and Kim Rogers for opening their doors to us, the committee and Diane Chislett for baking all the scones. The evening was a great social event that helped raise £550, but it had a serious twist – last year, R.A.B.I gave out more than £19,000 to farming families and individuals in West Yorkshire alone.”
