BAGMA members invited to donate to RHASS fundraiser

There’s still time to donate to The Royal Highland & Agricultural Society’s (RHASS) 2.6 Challenge fundraiser.

The organisers of the Royal Highland Show joined forces with other UK charities to take part in The 2.6 Challenge, which was launched on Sunday, April 26, with their campaign  #TheShowMustGoOn!

The Covid-19 pandemic has had a devastating impact, with the cancellation of the Royal Highland Show and thousands of other events across the UK, resulting in the loss of billions of pounds in income to UK charities, such as the Royal Highland & Agricultural Society.

The  launch of the 2.6 Challenge coincided with the date of the 40th London Marathon, to raise vital funds to help the UK’s charities to carry on their work.

To take part in in the 2.6 Challenge, you simply agree to complete an activity of your choice based around the numbers 2.6 or 26 and to fundraise or donate to support a UK charity.

For those living and working in Scotland’s rural communities, RHASS members, supporters and thousands of visitors who come from the town and countryside to the Royal Highland Show each year, the rallying cry is #TheShowMustGoOn.

RHASS hopes BAGMA members will get behind the campaign to protect Scotland’s largest agricultural event and the benefits it brings to the food, farming and rural sector.

The challenge is open to everyone and all ages. For more information go to
