R.A.B.I are delighted to be the chosen charity of The High Sheriff of North Yorkshire, Mr John Furness of Kirby Knowle, Thirsk, for 2016.
During June, Mr Furness held a drinks reception at Thirsk Auction Mart which was well attended by around 200 people. Mr Furness invited R.A.B.I’s North Yorkshire Committee to run a hamper raffle at the event and also donated the first prize of a wonderful ‘Fodder’ hamper.
Fodder is the farm shop run by the Yorkshire Agricultural Society which works with 325 local farmers to stock their food hall and fill their café menu with the best Yorkshire meats and produce. The Committee provided another five hampers from Fodder and a percentage of the cost was kindly paid by the Society.
Many thanks to Mr Furness, pictured above, for raising £3,250 with this event.
