Veronica Sutton, R.A.B.I’s Leicestershire chairman, showed us that the fundraising spirit really does start in the home when she very kindly held a Sunday lunch at her home to help boost funds for R.A.B.I.
Thanks to sponsorship from Sharnford Tractors to help with the overheads, 65 people enjoyed a traditional Sunday beef roast followed by a selection of delicious puddings.
R.A.B,I regional manager for the East Midlands, Milly Fyfe said: “Approximately £1,300 has been raised for farming families – thanks to everyone’s generosity and Veronica for a wonderful afternoon.”
So far this year, R.A.B.I has given out grants of £29.7k to farming people struggling financially in Leicestershire – up 107% on this time last year.
