In April, the 12th annual Great British Beef Week returned to recognise British beef farmers and highlight sustainable production practices on farms. Organisers Ladies in Beef once again chose RABI as their partner charity, and county committees across the country held special fundraising events to celebrate the week.
Buckinghamshire RABI Pie & Pudding night
Bucks RABI held their Pie & Pudding Night at The Bell, Winslow after a two year break due to Covid. 50 people joined the committee to celebrate GBBW. Beef pie was on the menu and a delicious selection of desserts to choose from! On the evening a raffle took place and the committee managed to raise £547.
