Drovers Talk & Supper
17 April 2013
The village hall at Eathorpe was filled to capacity on 17th April for a Drover’s route talk by Bruce Smith, and a wonderful buffet supper provided by Rosie Reeve. The night was very informative and the guests enjoyed learning about the lengthy journeys made from Wales to London. The raffle made £222 and further funds are to follow.
Twenty volunteers gathered at Welsh Road Farm over the first weekend in April to help with car parking duties for the increasingly popular WOLF run. A donation of £770 has been received for our efforts.
Warwickshire Farmers Ball
25 January 2013
Almost 500 people gathered at the Holiday Inn in Stratford-upon-Avon for the 101st Warwickshire Farmers Ball on Friday 25th January. With almost 100 raffle prizes ranging from a mini break in Norfolk and Rugby tickets to fruit hampers and a mini motorbike it was evident that the committee, led by Chairman, Amy Hutsby, had worked very hard in preparation for the event. The table that purchased the most raffle tickets (almost £400) won a jeroboam of Taittinger Champagne. A fantastic £3,000 was raised for R.A.B.I. so a huge thank you to everyone involved.
23 January 2013
Over 200 people enjoyed their breakfast on Wednesday 23rd January as part of Farmhouse Breakfast Week in the Jersey Society Pavilion at Stoneleigh Park. Many volunteers including Barclays and Bretherton employees took time out from their day job to help serve food, sell raffle tickets and even wash up.
Many thanks to Barclays for match-funding this charity event, and a further donation of £150 from Brethertons. Support from local businesses including Farmers Fayre and the many breakfast lovers was much appreciated. See you all next year!
