Scots rural charity RSABI has announced plans to release a book of funny farming stories.
The charity, which provides financial assistance to those who have relied on the land, is on the hunt for funny stories from the farming sector.
All funds raised from the book, which will be published later this year, will go to the charity.
The book is being compiled by agricultural journalist Andrew Arbuckle and his brother John.
RSABI chief executive Nina Clancy said: “We are delighted that Andrew and John Arbuckle are producing this book on RSABI’s behalf.
“The funds raised will help us continue to help hundreds of people working on Scotland’s land, or retired, and their dependants.”
Andrew Arbuckle said: “Farming is a tough business, as we all know, however, wherever farming folk meet, be it in the year, at the mart or at an agricultural show, there is always good humour around.
“We invite you to share your most enlivening stories, and in doing so, help us raise money to support RSABI’s invaluable work. If you feel unable to help us but know someone who has a wealth of funny tales and quips, please let him or her know. Let us have a laugh and help raise money for RSABI.”
Contributions can be acknowledged or remain anonymous.
To share your funny farming stories, the Arbuckle duo can be contacted by phone or email.
Andrew Arbuckle can be contacted at email@example.com or by phone on 01337 870209, while John Arbuckle can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone on 01337 832805.
Last month RSABI launched a new helpline which is designed to provide a single point of inquiry for those in need.
The helpline – 0300 111 4166 – is open every day of the year from 7am to 11pm thanks to help from another rural charity – the Farm Community Network.
The helpline can provide advice on the benefits system as well as help on farming issues, personal matters such as money troubles and emotional distress.
