A garden party at the home of Sue and Brian Westmacott raised £3,226 last month.
Duncan Hawley, Warwickshire NFU county chairman, organised the event. Inspired by the annual Worcestershire R.A.B.I dinner, Duncan set out on a mission to host his own fundraising event to support the work of the charity. Sue, who runs Sue Dalby Catering, was keen to offer her services and home free of charge to make this dream a reality.
Fortunately, the weather was good and allowed the guests to enjoy a glass of Pimms in the garden before tucking into a three course meal, courtesy of Sue. After dinner, guests were entertained by James Walton, a local land agent who also serves as treasurer for the Warwickshire NFU. James showcased his musical talents long into the night.
Becky Davies, regional manager for R.A.B.I, said: “We are very grateful to Brian and Sue for being such generous and obliging hosts. What a fantastic way to bring the farming community together and raise some money for R.A.B.I whilst having fun.”
