Launched in January 2020, OnFARM showcases rural enterprise, community, creativity, charity, history and much more.
In lieu of this year's Royal Highland Show - a staple in our agricultural calendar which was sadly cancelled due to Coronavirus - OnFARM have been running a series of podcasts dedicated to the work of the Royal Highland and Agricultural Society of Scotland (RHASS).
Moredun was set up 100 years ago with the support of RHASS and the National Farmers Union of Scotland. Professor Lee Innes was interviewed for the 8th episode of the RHASS specials and talks about the plans we had to celebrate our Centenary at the Royal Highland Show.
Ever since it got its Royal Charter in 1784, RHASS has been committed to helping individuals and organisations that improve, encourage, benefit, or otherwise advance rural Scotland. It does this through grants, scholarships, awards and other support. This work is funded in large part from money raised at the Royal Highland Show, and through events and venue hire on the show ground at Ingliston.
This episode of OnFARM explores the scope of this charitable work and finds out what RHASS needs from its supporters after the 2020 show’s cancellation and loss of millions of pounds due to Coronavirus.
