HRH The Prince of Wales met with Georgina Lamb, regional manager for the North West, at the Westmorland County Show, near Kendal.
On his tour of the show, he stopped to talk to Georgina to learn more about the charity. “I explained what R.A.B.I does to help farmers in financial need,” said Georgina. “I also shared that sometimes the pride of farmers makes them resistant to admit that they’re struggling. There’s no shame in asking R.A.B.I for help.”
Georgina added: “The Prince of Wales recalled the storms and floods in the north in 2015 and how devastating they were. I told him that R.A.B.I gave out £91,000 in grants to help those affected during that difficult time.”
The Prince of Wales commented that he thought R.A.B.I ‘does a fantastic job’ in helping the farming community.
“We also talked about the other charities that R.A.B.I is connected to, and involved with, including the Prince’s Countryside Fund, which The Prince of Wales is the patron of,” said Georgina.
The Prince of Wales has strong ties to the farming industry and joined in a celebration of agriculture at this year’s show, which featured livestock displays, horse jumping, and more.
“It was a huge pleasure to speak to him,” Georgina admitted afterwards.
“He only visited a few stands and it was such an honour for FCN, who were hosting me, to be one of them. He had such an interest in what we all do and how we help the farming community.”
