Fifth main sponsor announced for Lincolnshire Rural Charities Dinner 24 Jan

LJ Fairburn and Sons joins Limagrain, Wilkin Chapman LLP, Smailes, Goldie Turner and Brown & Co as the main event sponsors announced so far. The Dinner will be held at the Epic Centre, Lincolnshire Showground on Thursday 11 April and will raise funds for three major county-based charities: Lincolnshire Agricultural Society, which celebrates its 150th anniversary this year, the Jon Egging Trust and the Lincolnshire Rural Support Network.

Chairman of the event’s organising committee, Meryl Ward said: “We are so pleased that LJ Fairburn and Sons has come on board as the sponsor of our chef, Stephen Bennett. As a family-run farming business, their professionalism and progressive attitude to poultry and egg production and marketing means they are leaders in their sector, not just in Lincolnshire but country-wide. The Fairburn family is well-known for supporting the local community and local and national charities, including Farm Africa. Their support for the 2019 Lincolnshire Rural Charities Dinner is very much appreciated.

“The third Lincolnshire Rural Charities dinner will provide a memorable and unique way to tell the three charities’ stories and by raising money for them, will enable them to continue the great work they do in the county.”

The theme of this year’s Charity Dinner is “Past, Present and Future”, and the dinner will feature a menu of local produce, designed and introduced by the Lincolnshire Chef, Stephen Bennett and guests will enjoy fine food, great fun and entertainment, beginning with a champagne reception kindly sponsored by Lincolnshire-based plant breeder and seed producer, Limagrain.

The three dinner sponsors were announced in December and are Smailes, Goldie Turner, agricultural accountants based in Barton upon Humber and Hull, farm and rural business consultants and land agents, Brown & Co and Wilkin Chapman LLP, one of the largest law firms in Lincolnshire and East Yorkshire.
