Lucky Strike at Cereals

Roger Chase, Agriculture Manager of Spaldings with the R.A.B.I. lucky dip draw

With thanks to Spaldings of Lincoln who once again offered generous support at the Cereals event. All customers placing an order during the show were entered into a free prize draw where they could pick a football in the World Cup lucky-dip and a donation was given to R.A.B.I. A fantastic £400 was raised!

Ride Remembers Friend of R.A.B.I.

A charity ride is set to remember horse enthusiast and friend of R.A.B.I., Sue Duffin, after she lost her battle with cancer in April of this year.

A pleasure ride will be held at Manor Farm in Carburton, where Sue enjoyed riding, on Sunday 21 September at 12.30pm at a cost of £15 per rider. The proceeds of the ride will be donated to R.A.B.I..

Regional manager Milly Wastie said: “It is wonderful that friends and family have chosen to remember Sue and her passion for horse riding in this way, and we’re very grateful that they have chosen R.A.B.I. to benefit from the ride.”

Host Robert Bower, who is also Chairman of Nottinghamshire R.A.B.I., commented on his motivation for organising the ride: “Sue and I had a common interest, her horse Ben was a large part of her life, as well as my horse which she exercised during her illness. Sue was a lovely and kind lady who was always supportive of my work with R.A.B.I. It was both humbling and a privilege to have been part of her life and this ride will, we hope, be held every year in memory of the full and courageous life she led.”

With thanks to Lincolnshire's Steve Smith who chose R.A.B.I to benefit from a clay shoot organised to give back to the very charities that had helped him. Steve waived his anonymity to promote the charity shoot and helped raise a huge £1100 for R.A.B.I. and the Gamekeepers’ Welfare Trust.

The shoot was held at Nettleton Lodge near Caistor and attracted supporters from across the county to take part in the 35-bird competition. Steve said: "I would like to thank everyone who came along on the day and helped to raise money for important causes close to my heart." Steve hopes to continue the good work with plans for a clay shoot in 2015.

Steve presented regional manager Milly Wastie a cheque for £550 at the Lincolnshire Show
