Fresh from appearing on Good Morning Britain, Herefordshire farmer Martin Williams was guest speaker at a harvest supper at Bromyard Rugby Club. Herefordshire YFC members Ali Parker and Thomas Pritchard provided the entertainment.
Around 80 guests attended the supper, which raised £932. Martin runs an AHDB (Agricultural and Horticultural Development Board) monitor farm on the banks of the River Wye at Fownhope.
Regional Manager for the West Midlands, Kate Jones, said: “Martin was an excellent speaker, full of great stories. Talking to a farming audience was, however, very different to being up against Brian May on national TV.”
Kate also spoke at the event about R.A.B.I’s work. She added: “We’re fortunate to have a growing number of dedicated volunteers in Herefordshire who work tirelessly for our cause. Our volunteers, who raise lots of fundraisers as part of county committees, are the lifeblood of R.A.B.I.”
