Simon Pearson, Director of LIAT and Professor of Agri-Food Technology at the University of Lincoln, has been invited to deliver a keynote speech at the third Lincolnshire Rural Charities Dinner.
Hosted at the Lincolnshire Showground’s Epic Centre on 11th April 2019, the dinner is being held to celebrate the work of charities that actively work to support communities throughout Lincolnshire and beyond. The Lincolnshire Rural Support Network helps over 140 rural families a year with practical and emotional support, and is working with the Lincolnshire Diocese and the Methodist District to fundraise to secure the future of Agricultural Chaplaincy in the County.
The Jon Egging Trust has worked with more than 1500 young people in Lincolnshire inspiring and supporting them to overcome adversity and achieve, and the Lincolnshire Agricultural Society’s Educational Trust, which works to promote food and farming. These charities all provide vital services and rely extensively on fund-raising for their continued operation.
In celebration of the Lincolnshire Agricultural Society’s 150th year, the evening’s theme will be ‘Past, Present and Future’ and guests will be provided a sumptuous meal of Lincolnshire produce designed and introduced by Steven Bennett, ‘The Lincolnshire Chef’ at Healing Manor during a fun evening of fine dining and entertainment.
