Poole, Dorset, November 8, 2018 – Ibcos Computers Ltd., a leading business management software vendor for agricultural, groundcare, and construction dealers, is pleased to announce its sponsorship of the Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institution’s (R.A.B.I.) annual quiz night and supper – to be hosted on Friday, November 16.
The event will take place at Millennium Barn Parrish’s Lodge Farm, Chicksands, at 6:30 pm and will cost £10 per person, with up to six people allowed per team.
The R.A.B.I. is a charity organisation dedicated to the farming community and supported by several of Ibcos’ key dealers. It has been running for almost 160 years and gives out £2,000,000 per year in subsidies, grants, support and other financial aid.
What makes the R.A.B.I. stand out is its support of the farming family rather than the business. So, if someone has been a tenant for years, but hasn’t gotten a good pension pot, then the R.A.B.I. will step in to provide food, heating, holiday gifts and other amenities.
Because of its efforts, the R.A.B.I. has been instrumental during several farming crises. For instance, during the 2014 farming floods in Somerset, the R.A.B.I. provided food for the affected farm animals.
In the last few years, the R.A.B.I. has also been making a big push on the mental health issues affecting the farming community, particularly suicide and depression. To bolster its impact, the R.A.B.I. has been working closely with the Farm Community Network (F.C.N.) – another charity organisation that helps Samaritan farmers and farming families.
“It’s very important for us, as a company, to support organisations like the R.A.B.I.,” said Collette Convery, the Managing Director at Ibcos, “After all, we’re all in this industry together. This means that, to an extent, everyone has an obligation to contribute something, when possible. Furthermore, a prosperous, healthy farming community isn’t just good for our business – it’s good for everyone.”
