He is regularly at Twickenham for England rugby matches and entertained before many world title boxing matches, in the UK and Las Vegas.

Bracon Ash Social Club – Celebration and Charity Evening

A charity horse racing night has been arranged by Russell Baker, Lord of Little Moulton, who lives in Bracon Ash, near Wymondham, and with the help of local community support is hoping to raise significant funds for the Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institution (R.A.B.I.). R.A.B.I is a grant-making charity that supports members of the farming community facing need, hardship or distress. Founded in 1860 the charity has an unbroken history of providing long-term care and emergency help for farmers, farm workers, tenant farmers, farm managers, and families.

R.A.B.I. provides care and support for farmers, farm workers, farm managers and their dependents. Many of those individuals supported are retired people who are struggling to get by on low incomes. They also help people of any age in times of crisis and those who are disabled ranging from young children to people over 100 years old.

In addition to raising much needed funds for R.A.B.I the charity horse racing event is also to celebrate a local man in the village of Bracon Ash. Mr Edward ‘Ted’ Moore is celebrating his 84th birthday whilst also celebrating over 40 years as an active member of the Bracon Ash and Hethel Social Club. Sadly Mr Moore lost his wife Jessie in September this year; they were married for over 60 years.

Mr Moore said, “It’s been really hard over the past couple of months, and R.A.B.I have been very supportive. It’s fantastic that Lord Baker has arranged and sponsoring this event and in doing so supporting R.A.B.I”.

Lord Baker said, “I am absolutely delighted to be able to arrange this horse racing night of behalf of Mr Moore, ‘Ted’ really is a wonderful man who is an inspiration to the local community”. All the proceeds on the night will be presented to R.A.B.I”.

Lord Baker continued, “The Bracon Ash and Hethel Social Club is an important part of the local community so I am hoping we will get a great turnout on the night. The club itself has been closed since May this year due to flood damage, and this event is effectively the opening night, so many celebrations all round”.

The horse racing evening will be held at the newly refurbished Bracon Ash and Hethel Social Club in Hawkes Lane on Saturday 9th November 2013. Doors open at 19:30 and naturally everyone is welcome.
