Holsworthy Market Christmas sale raises money for RABI.

A Christmas auction of toy tractors and limited edition machinery at Holsworthy Market has raised £550 to help local farming families in difficulty.

The money went to the Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institution (RABI). Regional manager Pam Wills was delighted with the result: “Thank you for the generous support from Hamblys, Claas Tractors and Kivells Auctioneers, as well as everyone who turned out in terrible weather and supported the auction,” she said.
