The annual Staffordshire dinner, held at the county showground, raised a whopping £9,197.
Organised by the Staffordshire committee, the event welcomed 260 guests for a three course meal. Alastair Sneddon from Bagshaws was the guest speaker and Mike Williams led the auction. Members of the Staffordshire young farmers ran a raffle, which contributed to funds raised.
Kate Jones, regional manager for the West Midlands, said: “The Staffordshire committee worked hard to sell tickets and source prizes for the raffle and auction.
“We are delighted with the amount made at this event, especially considering the increased financial support R.A.B.I is giving in Staffordshire. So far this year, we’ve given out around £24,600 to farming people in the county, compared to £14,600 for the same period last year.”
Thank you to Barclays for their match-funding of £3,000.
