Charitable Grant Scheme

 

Charitable Grant Scheme 2020

Following the unprecedented wet weather of the last six months, the farming community has been under a lot of pressure to cope financially, physically and mentally.

The Society has therefore made charitable grant awards to the Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institution (R.A.B.I.), Shropshire Support Network and West Mercia Search & Rescue.   A donation has also been made to West Midlands Air Ambulance from funds raised at the Chairman’s Charity lunch last August.   We are delighted to support all four organisations who provide invaluable support to the farming community.
