Derbyshire Trail Riders
The East Midlands branch of the Trail Riders fellowship (TRF) based in Derbyshire, donated £1741.00 to farming charity the Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institution (R.A.B.I.) this week following a bad spate of publicity surrounding off road biking activities.
The group, made up of 70 – 100 biking enthusiasts, decided to donate the proceeds of the Kevin Brinklow memorial ride, nicknamed the mine pie run, towards R.A.B.I. to forge better links with the farming community and open new avenues for responsible bike riding across farm and fell land.
Farmer Steve Hough, a member of the TRF encouraged the group to choose R.A.B.I. as the charity to benefit from the donation, as it is a charity close to his heart. Steve commented ‘The R.A.B.I. helps to support farmers, farm workers and their families in times of crisis’. ‘I could see that by supporting this charity we could give thanks to the farmers who allow us to ride across their land and improve the profile of our group and the responsible ethos we have’.
Turndith & Windley Show
The Turnditch and Windley Show committee have donated £750 from the proceeds of the 2013 event to R.A.B.I.. Pictured here is Michael Halls and Malcolm Sutton presenting Derbyshire R.A.B.I. chairman Angela Sargent (right) with the donation. The R.A.B.I. committee has also been invited to take a stand at the 2014 show which takes place on Saturday 6 September.
Scarsdale Vets Quiz Night
Thank you to Scarsdale farm vets who once again supported R.A.B.I. at their regular quiz nights at their Pride Park practice in Derby. R.A.B.I. county committee chairman Angela Sargent had a team and was delighted when her team won and even happier to receive a donation to R.A.B.I. of £368. The next quiz is at the practice on Thursday 10 April.
