Fundraising events a great success

RABI_25707

Congratulations to Cornwall’s RABI fundraising committee who raised more than £10,000 (with donations still coming in) from events held on what would have been the middle day of the Royal Cornwall Show.

An auction hosted by Edward Buckland Auctioneers saw a total of 40 donated lots fetching £6,221. Donations during a quiz, hosted by Brian Harvey from PKF Francis Clark and broadcast live on Facebook, topped £2,000 and were matched by Barclays.

Brian also made good on his pledge to shave off his beard should donations on the night exceed £1,000.

Jon Perry, Cornwall RABI (and NFU) chairman, said: “This amazing outcome, even under the current social distancing rules, is testament to the all who contributed and will make a difference to so many. Thanks to everyone who donated auction items, those who bought them and everyone who took part in the quiz and gave to this worthy cause.”
