R.A.B.I. Countryside Race Meeting

The Leicestershire Committee of the Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institution (R.A.B.I.) are organising Countryside Race Meeting at Leicester Racecourse on Monday 21st May 2018 where they hope that members of the countryside, farming, business and local community will come along to enjoy the event.

R.A.B.I.  is a grant-making charity that works across England and Wales and on a regional basis giving welfare and financial support to members of the farming community of all ages who are facing need, hardship or distress. The generosity of donors helps the charity to support the farming community who, through no fault of their own find themselves in financial difficulty. A little help at the right time is often what makes all the difference, enabling them to get back on their feet again.

Buy tickets from Leicester Racecourse.

More details about the meeting including tickets, sponsorship and hospitality are available from Mary Martin:
