Regional managers Georgina Lamb and Sally Conner were invited to the Yorkshire Post’s rural awards night, where a silent auction raised funds for the charity.
Held at the Pavilions of Harrogate at the Great Yorkshire Showground, the awards ceremony celebrated the contributions of individuals, businesses and community organisations in Yorkshire. Jeanette Dawson, R.A.B.I trustee and Bishop Burton College principal and chief executive, was a judge and helped select the winners.
BBC journalist Harry Gration compèred the event, including the silent auction at the end of the night. Among many interesting lots up for grabs were tickets for the Monaco Grand Prix. Funds raised by the auction will be split between R.A.B.I and the Autism Angels.
Following a three-course meal and entertainment from Halifax-based singer Julie Diamond, the award winners were announced. Victoria and James Robertshaw of Keelham Farm Shop received recognition in the Large Farm Shop category. Georgina Lamb said: “I’m pleased Victoria and James won their category. We’re looking forward to working with them in the future.”
