Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institution (RABI)

Our second nominated charities for 2018 is The Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institution (RABI).

Farming can be an unpredictable business and it’s impossible to prepare for all eventualities.  Sometimes, something appears from nowhere and hits you hard.  It might be animal disease, flooding, ill health, an accident or cash flow problems.

RABI is farming’s oldest and largest welfare charity, operating in England and Wales.  They provide financial assistance to retired and working farmers, farmworkers and their families.  They help people in financial hardship of all ages, including dependants and also support the sick and disabled.

Every year RABI give out around £2m in grants to farming people in hardship of all ages.  Their work is funded by donations, money raised at events arranged by county committees, regional managers, businesses and community groups.
