Rural Support is delighted that the organisers of the Northern Ireland Farm Toy and Model Show have selected it as their charity for the upcoming show.
This gives the charity the opportunity to fundraise through a prize drawn raffle at the upcoming show. Rural Support is a small charity and relies on ongoing fundraising to continue its work.
The Northern Ireland Farm Toy and Model Show will take place in the Magherabuoy House Hotel, Portrush on Friday 27th March 2015 from 2pm to 10pm. Rural Support will be on hand to provide information about its helpline service for farm families and rural dwellers. Rural Support can provide practical and emotional support with regards to a variety of issues including farm paperwork, financial concerns, physical and mental health and general stress.
Melissa Wylie, Outreach & Promotion Officer for Rural Support commented: “We are very grateful to the organisers of the Northern Ireland Farm Toy and Model Show for giving us this opportunity to promote our services and to raise some much needed funds.
“With the recent increase in the demand for our services and in particular individuals wishing to avail of the financial mentoring currently being offered, the fundraising will help continue the high standard of service currently being delivered. This is a superb event and makes a great day out for the family. So why not come along, support the show and help out a local charity.”
If you too are interested in availing of the financial mentoring currently being provided by Rural Support then all it requires is an initial call to the helpline - 0845 606 7 607.
Rural Support can provide up to three sessions of free, confidential, face to face support from a Finance Mentor to analyse your current financial/farm business position and help identify a way forward.
This may include considering changes to the farm business or developing a financial or debt management plan. Rural Support will support you to take action to address financial problems and will ease the burden of dealing with financial stress alone.
