Join leading regional law firm to raise charity cash with flowers at this year’s Driffield Show

Legal agricultural experts are blossoming into florists for the day at this year’s Driffield Show to raise vital funds for the Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institution, (R.A.B.I.).

With specialist expertise in the agricultural sector, Wilkin Chapman solicitors has an annual stand at the popular East Yorkshire show, and last year it hit on an idea to make and sell floral buttonholes with flowers gathered from solicitors’ gardens and fields.

Asking guests to the stand for a donation to R.A.B.I in return for a buttonhole they raised more than £100 for the charity and so decided to create a larger floral enterprise this year; hoping to raise more money for the charity that offers support to farming families. There will be some pre-made buttonholes to buy with a basket full of loose flowers so people can make their own.

Senior Solicitor within the firm’s Agricultural Property team in Beverley, Amy Slocombe Smith said: “The Driffield Show is a real celebration of East Yorkshire’s rich agricultural history and we will be delighted if we can surpass last year’s fund-raising total, supporting this extremely worthy cause.”

Wilkin Chapman will be on stand F100 at this year's Driffield Show, where you will be able to buy and/or make a buttonhole to support R.A.B.I
