County Durham committee members David and Lorna Maughan won R.A.B.I’s North East regional award. The couple collected the prize from NFU Vice President at the annual awards ceremony in Oxfordshire.
Joshua Hosier, deputy chairman, said: “David and Lorna were involved right from the start of the committee. They’re chicken/egg farmers and are themselves really good eggs!
“They are amazing ticket sellers and great at securing raffle prizes from lots of local companies. They also started what is now a very successful annual golf day, even though they knew nothing about golf.”
David thanked the charity for the award and said: “We feel privileged to receive this. Durham is a small county and the committee hasn’t been going for that many years, but we have good members who are very active. We do our small part.”
