Hayley Hanson, a welsh cattle farmer and owner of luxury leather brand Hayley Hanson, will raffle off a handmade hide chair worth £2,000 to raise money for the Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institution (RABI).
A fifth-generation cattle farmer from mid-Wales who diversified into tanning hides and crafting leather fashion and homeware, Ms Hanson hopes to raise £5,000 for the charity after becoming concerned its usual fundraising events were cancelled or postponed.
Ms Hanson said: “Farming truly runs in my blood so I am aware of the amazing work carried out by RABI all over England and Wales.
“When my local branch had to cancel their fundraising fashion show, I thought about how much they would miss the money which would have been raised and knew I had to help.
“I hope that by offering the chair as the prize, I will compel people to snap up a ticket and raise lots of money for RABI.”
The chair is made from a Welsh bred Simmental hide and raffle tickets cost £5.
Welsh farmer Gareth Wyn Jones will draw and pick the winner on September 7 and all profits (the costs are only the fees from fundraising and payment platforms) will go directly to RABI.
