Despite it not being Halloween yet, the RSABI has kickstarted the festive season with the start of its Christmas fundraising campaign.
The first initiative is its collection of farming-themed greetings cards, available for £5 per pack of ten.
Income raised from the cards will provide the charity with funds to continue providing financial, practical and emotional support to people in Scottish agriculture.
Pauline Macmillan, head of fundraising at RSABI, highlighted the importance of supporting the charity’s services this winter.
“The run-up to Christmas is a very important time for fundraising for RSABI. As a charity, we rely on the kind donations of our supporters, and income from initiatives like our Christmas card sales allows us to continue providing essential services to those in the farming community who may be struggling.
“Our thanks also go out to the team at Dumfries House for providing us with the bales and space to create our winter bale art to help launch our festive fundraising campaign. Our Christmas card launch is the first in a series of festive initiatives launching in the coming weeks.”
The charity is also asking people to consider a RSABI Supporter Scheme membership as a Christmas gift this year, which includes a #KeepTalking beanie worth £10. Recipients will also know that their donation is supporting the charity’s work.
