A charity breakfast event is taking place at The Barn at Beal near Holy Island on Thursday, January 28.

The event is held by the Addington Fund Charity which supports farmers in times of emergency or hardship. It provides advice and support and, in the worst-case scenario, an alternative place to live.

The Addington Fund is organising a series of eight fund-raising Farmhouse Breakfasts across the country.

The ‘welly good’ sausage makers at debbie&andrew’s have stepped in to set the breakfasts a-sizzle with free sausages provided under their micro sponsorship scheme which supports fund-raisers that bring A Real Taste of the Country to life.

Ian Bell, CEO of the Addington Fund, said: “Our breakfast bonanza is inspired by Breakfast Week. This is a great platform to showcase the wealth of wonderful foods our farmers produce, all of which provide the perfect start to the day.

“We are delighted that debbie&andrew’s sausages will be on our Farmhouse Breakfast menu to bring a little extra sizzle to our guests’ day.”

The Addington Fund is also using the breakfast events to help local farmers build business networks.

“More than ever, a successful farmer has to be involved in a wider network of contacts in order to promote his business.

Each regional event aims to connect farmers with local retailers, hotels and restaurants, banks, business advisors, accountants and lawyers.

Ian Bagnall, spokesman for debbie&andrew’s, added: “We are delighted to join the regional supporters and hosts to support these excellent events.”

The Barn at Beal event is being hosted by kind permission of Rod Smith. It will be serving full English breakfasts from 9am to 11am.

This event is kindly supported by Strutt & Parker and Barclays. Tickets are available now.
