Congratulations to David Hutchinson, the first winner of the regional award for the East Midlands. These new awards are presented to committees or individuals within a region who, in the opinion of the Awards Panel, should receive special recognition for their work supporting R.A.B.I.
David joined the Northamptonshire Committee around three years ago and has recently taken on the role of Chairman. In the three years he’s been on board, he’s managed to bring on and recruit the support of many corporates, including the annual Christmas event which took place at his farm in 2014, raising £5,000, and again at another location in 2015 raising £3,000.
He has secured £2,000 each year from the Duchy of Lancaster thanks to his connections and set up a working party with the CLA for social events to raise money for R.A.B.I.
David has provided great support and enthusiasm to the committee and attends many events on their behalf, often taking with him his wife Anne and son Charles to lend a hand too. Many thanks David!
