The Hampshire committee was delighted to win the best charity trade stand at the Alresford Show for the third year running.
Located in Tichborne Park, the show welcomed hundreds of visitors. Entertainment included performances by local band Alresford Ukulele Jam, falconry displays, and a bee tent where visitors had the chance to learn all about beekeeping.
The R.A.B.I drew a crowd with its 1938 Brown Ferguson tractor, loaned by supporter Joe Corbett. Guests could enter a prize draw competition by answering three questions about the history of the tractor.
The committee raised £668 through competition entries, Christmas card sales, and donations.
Sally Field, South East regional manager, said: “Our stand has grown in popularity each year. It’s become a great focal point for members of the farming and rural communities of Hampshire to pop in, have a chat and see what we’re up to.
“It was also heart-warming to meet people we’ve helped. Three people came over to us during the show and thanked us for all we’ve done for them.”
