Milly said: “Members went singing around their advisory members’ houses and the local pubs. We really appreciate them raising money on our behalf.”
A ‘Welly’ Good Night!
Members of Spilsby YFC club in Lincolnshire presented R.A.B.I.’s regional manager Milly Wastie with a cheque for £250 at the club’s 70th anniversary dance in September.
The money was raised by a ‘Welly Disco’ held during the charity’s national Welly Week campaign last year. The club is a regular supporter of the annual event.

15 September 2013
A Lincolnshire farmer has donated more than £1,500 to R.A.B.I., after arranging a 24-hour ‘ploughathon’ to thank the charity for stepping in to help when he was ill.
Steve Smith, together with friends Glen Chambers and Ivan Kireia, completed the challenge with the help of landowner Charles Jackson, who also provided a Massey Ferguson tractor and plough for the event.
Between 9am on 31 August and 9am on 1 September Steve ploughed approximately 34 acres of land near Market Rasen.
Steve said: “The going was very tough, with boulders of soil the size of footballs, and we used a tank and a half of fuel, but I wanted to give something back to those who helped me.
“When illness comes just like that, life can be lonely - even with family around you. It wasn’t just the financial help from R.A.B.I., it was also having someone to talk to outside the family.”
Before his illness Steve was used to working 16-hour days, but he can now only work 16 hours a week. He said: “It means a lot to be able to give a donation to R.A.B.I. and it means a lot to the people R.A.B.I. help.”
R.A.B.I. is grateful to Steve for waiving his anonymity for us to share his story and promote the great work he has done for us.
