Supporters in Hertfordshire celebrated the 160th anniversary of R.A.B.I at Tewin Bury Farm Hotel, raising around £1,900.
The charity was founded in 1860 by John Mechi. Concerned about poverty in the farming community, Mechi wrote to The Times to rally support, resulting in 450 pledges to make annual donations. 160 years later, the charity is still going strong and supports over 1,000 farming people annually.
More than 100 guests tucked into a three-course dinner in the hotel’s Tythe Barn – a 17th century building with a view of the River Mimram. Each table was decorated with a beautiful plant, which were sold at the end of the night.
Amiee P delighted guests with her renditions of 60s and 70s classics and had everyone up on the dance floor.
Thank you to those who donated prizes to the raffle, which contributed £755 to the total raised.
