The night raised £5,500 – including £2,000 from a lively auction conducted by Justin Lowe, Partner at Greenslade Taylor Hunt’s Yeovil office. A raffle, a table flower raffle, plus £1,000 match funding from Barclays boosted the coffers.
Great British Beef Week is organised by Ladies in Beef, in partnership with farming welfare charity, the Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institution (R.A.B.I). The aim of the campaign is to encourage the British public to celebrate the quality and versatility of British beef, particularly Red Tractor farm-assured beef.
Pam Wills, R.A.B.I. Regional Manager for the South West said: “James Orme, RABI Vice President, informed everyone of the invaluable work that the charity does to support the farming communities with some heartfelt examples of the help given to beneficiaries. It clearly emphasised the importance of the fundraising events such as the beef supper in supporting the charity’s work.”
