Barclays farming staff ride high for RABI…

Barclays Agricultural Banking raised £56,000 for RABI over the last 12 months, through fund-raising activities by staff and the banks pound-for-pound scheme. It included £20,000 raised by a 60-mile sponsored bike ride by the North West agricultural team. "The past year has been a particularly difficult time for rural communities, with hardship reaching unprecedented levels," said RABI chief executive Tony McMahon (left, seen with bank staff). "At a time like this, the work of RABI and support of organisations such as Barclays is invaluable."
