Kingston Maurward College once again welcomed the Ladies in Beef annual ‘Host a Roast’ event on St George’s Day.
Ladies in Beef is a group of female beef farmers who care passionately about British beef. The organisation was formed to help promote awareness of the quality and versatility of British beef to consumers using a country-wide network of dynamic lady beef ‘champions’. All the ladies are British beef farmers and proud of it!
Through regional and national fundraising events Ladies in Beef raises money for RABI – farming’s national charity.
One such event – Great British Beef Week – is an annual celebration of the British Beef industry, coinciding with St George’s Day each year, and is supported with the backing of the nation’s biggest supermarkets.
The Dorset Ladies in Beef have for the past three years held a ‘Host a Roast’ fundraising lunch at Kingston Maurward in Dorchester. This year, with ticket sales and a contribution from Kingston Maurward, the event is expected to raise around £800 for RABI.
Regional Manager for RABI South West, Pam Wills, said: “The lunch was a great success and, as always, we were looked after very well by the team at the College.
“Great British Beef Week is a chance to get British beef on the menu while raising funds for farming people. This is the third year that the Dorset RABI committee has staged a St Georges Day lunch.
“The committee work hard to raise funds for farming families who are experiencing difficult times, and the lunch is a great way to bring supporters of British farming together to enjoy good food and good company in beautiful surroundings – the perfect way to celebrate British Beef!”
