It’ll be eyes down for bingo at the Haverfordwest Cricket Club on Thursday November 19, with proceeds going to farming charity R.A.B.I.
The Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institution (R.A.B.I) was established back in 1860 to provide financial help to farmers in need. Today, the charity’s work remains as relevant as ever, giving out around £2m in grants in England and Wales last year.
The bingo night is being organised by the Pembrokeshire R.A.B.I ladies’ committee and prizes include Christmas poultry vouchers. Doors will open at 7pm with the first game getting underway at 8pm.
Linda Jones, R.A.B.I regional manager for Wales, said: “Our fundraising events in Pembrokeshire are generally well received and the committee works extremely hard to raise awareness of the work we do.”
Helen Williams, Pembrokeshire R.A.B.I ladies’ committee chairman, added: “Last year, R.A.B.I gave out more than £23k in Pembrokeshire to help farming families. Year upon year, the charity is doing more to help those still active in the industry.”
People must have limited savings and be on a low income to qualify for R.A.B.I’s help, but even if we can’t give a grant, we may be able to help and / or suggest someone who can. If you know someone who is in need of assistance please call our confidential helpline 0808 2819490.
