Derbyshire R.A.B.I. Fashion Show Raises Funds
The Derbyshire R.A.B.I. fundraising committee raised £330 by hosting a fashion show at Peak gateway caravan park at Osmaston nr Ashbourne. The clothes were modelled by committee members, children and even animals as they showcases the collection by Fashion for Eternity, a boutique shop situated on site. The theme for the evening was ‘Best of British with clothing sourced locally with a farming twist and guests able to purchase after the show.
The event was organised by committee member Margaret Baile who commented that ‘ It’s fantastic to receive so much support from the local community in making this event such a success’. ‘The funds raised will go towards supporting farming families in Derbyshire who are experiencing difficulties, especially after all the bad weather and snow’.
Fundraising Success at Joules Sale
8 April 2013
Held at the Farming Life centre at Blackwell Hall Farm, the Derbyshire R.A.B.I. committee hosted a Joules seconds clothing sale to raise money for the Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institution.
Country folk from across the county flocked to grab a bargain in the rural setting and thanks to the hard work of Kate Wainwright and Maggie Baile of the fundraising committee, £440 was raised.
This event comes at a time when the farming community has been hit hard with the cold and snowy weather conditions. R.A.B.I. has recently doubled its amount of grants it gives out to working farming families, in need of emergency grant funding. Therefore the money raised will really help support those living locally who face desperate times.

Around 70 people attended the evening and sampled the locally brewed Shottle brewery beer made by Tony and Sue Laven. Everyone enjoyed the evening and £455 was raised. Committee member Bill Dilks even had a beer named after him!
