Farming charities race day

A Lincolnshire Rural Charities Race Day is being held on Sunday, April 14 at Market Rasen Racecourse to raise awareness and funds.

It is being put on by the Lincolnshire Rural Support Network (LRSN), Lincolnshire Federation of Young Farmers Clubs (LFYFC) and the Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institution (RABI) who are working together to host the day.

The three charities are aware of the current need for emotional and economic support for the farmers, farming families and farming businesses in these uncertain economic times in Lincolnshire, which has, with its rich agricultural heritage, a high percentage of farming and rural families.

By working together they hope to increase the awareness of their charities to those involved in agriculture so they have a better understanding of the services they provide. In addition they aim to raise vital funds to help sustain their work.

Various sponsorship packages are available for companies, businesses, groups and organisations to take advantage of, as well as hospitality in the Brocklesby Suite for avid race goers.

The race day, which is open to everyone and welcomes families too, is set to be a huge success.
