Feather Down Supporting the Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institution
Feather Down Farm Days, the award-winning pioneer of glamping, is now committed to supporting the Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institution. Founded in 1860, the R.A.B.I charity continues to be vital today, with 2,000 working farmers and retired farmers a year in financial difficulty relying on one-off and regular grants.
Feather Down guests are offered the opportunity of making a donation of any amount when booking a stay at their choice of all of the UK farms.
The R.A.B.I gives support both on a short-term and long-term basis: short-term following illness, accident, bereavement, family breakdown, or animal disease; and long-term help to elderly people and disabled people of all ages. Grants include winter heating supplements and assistance with utility bills. The organisation can also pay for specialist equipment, essential household goods, hospital travel costs, and relief farm staff if, for instance, someone is unable to work through illness or that of a close member of their family.
The work of the Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institution is funded by voluntary donations, money raised at events arranged by county committees of volunteers, businesses and community groups, their own fundraising staff and investment income.
Feather Down is partnering with the R.A.B.I as it is clearly worthy and essential in the land. We hope that guests of Feather Down will think so too and might like to donate when making a booking whatever amount that is felt to be appropriate.
