WILTSHIRE couple Melanie and Jeremy Newman generously opened up the doors of their Winkworth Farm in Lea to serve breakfasts to more than 85 people from all over Wiltshire.

The big-hearted couple hosted their fifth annual Farmhouse Breakfast to raise money for the Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institution (R.A.B.I), a charity that gives out around £2m per year to farming people in financial hardship.

Sue and Andy from Waring’s Catering helped cook and serve the breakfasts, while Sherston Free Range Eggs and Malmesbury-based firm, The Tracklement Company, donated produce.

Match-funding from Barclays ensured the event generated £2,042 for R.A.B.I.

R.A.B.I’s annual Farmhouse Breakfast campaign promotes everything that’s good about British produce in order to make winter a little warmer for families in serious hardship.

Last winter, R.A.B.I served up more than 2,000 breakfasts across 28 campaign events to raise over £20,000.
