The Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institution (RABI) has been nationally recognised for its support of the farming community, having been shortlisted for four awards in the 2022 Charity Times and Third Sector Awards.
Alongside being shortlisted for the Charity of the Year award, RABI has also been shortlisted for the Charity Times Change Project of the Year award, Charity Times Supporting Leader of the Year award and Third Sector Breakthrough of the Year award.
“I am incredibly proud that RABI has been shortlisted for these four awards,” said RABI chief executive Alicia Chivers.
“As we continue to develop really ambitious initiatives to provide even better support for farming people, these nominations are a recognition of the talent, dedication and commitment of everyone at the charity. To be shortlisted, and stand shoulder-to-shoulder with charities such as the Alzheimer’s Society, Shelter and Tommy’s, demonstrates that RABI’s ground-breaking support services deserve to be celebrated, not just within the farming sector but on a national scale.”
“I’m particularly proud that RABI has been shortlisted for the Charity Times Charity of the Year award. Any organisation is only as good as it’s people and this nomination represents a recognition that we have one of the best charity teams, providing the most effective support to farming people.”
The Charity Times Awards and Third Sector Awards are all about celebrating best-practice in the not-for-profit sector; entries are judged by a panel of experts who assess against specific criteria including impact, innovation, community focus and a charity’s ability to successfully overcome challenges
Both of the awards ceremonies will take place in London, in September.
