For the fifth consecutive year, Frogmary Green Farm in Somerset hosted their Great British Beef Supper, raising £5,500.
The annual supper is held as a part of Great British Beef Week – a campaign organised by farming group Ladies in Beef to celebrate everything good about British beef.
Kate Beavan, who runs a Great Tre-rhew farm with her family in Abergavenny, was the guest speaker. She is also a member of R.A.B.I’s Monmouthshire committee. Kate talked to guests about her life in farming, TV presenting, and the work the charity does.
On June 21 Nick Bragg, who owns Frogmary Green Farm with his wife Claire, sets off on a mammoth challenge to cross Canada on his trusty bicycle. In just 30 days, he will cycle 3,000 miles from Montréal to the Vancouver waterfront.
He said: “After my Trio of Triathlons in 2017, I was overwhelmed by the support I received from everyone and the funds raised went to the R.A.B.I to help agricultural families in need.
“Completing the triathlons was a real personal achievement for me, I really enjoyed the physical challenge and understood that having an interest outside of farming helped with my mental health and wellbeing. It didn’t take me long to decide that I needed another challenge and one that would hopefully raise a lot of money for R.A.B.I.
“The support that the charity provides to farming families and individuals is invaluable and it gives me great pleasure to support this very worthwhile cause.”
The money generated at the Great British Beef Supper brings Nick’s fundraising total up to £18,200. To make a donation, visit Nick’s Virgin Money Giving page.
