Corporates donned their wellies to show their support for farming people. Staff at JFC Agri, Farmers & Mercantile, Micron Bio-Systems and LHP Accountants didn’t mind getting mud in the office and wore their wellies to work. Meanwhile, a team from the East of England Agricultural Society went on a scenic welly walk around the showground.
Kiwi Kit hosted their own special Halloween giveaway for one lucky person to win a pair of Techno wellies – fittingly coloured black and orange for the spooky season.
R.A.B.I’s Cambridgeshire and Oxfordshire committees also got involved and dusted off their boots for their volunteers meetings. Other supporters shared photos of their dogs on their walks.
More than 1,000 people entered our giveaway competitions on social media to win a pair of boots from The Warm Welly Company, but only five could be winners. To enter the contest, participants had to show their knowledge of R.A.B.I and answer a question about the charity.
