Market Harborough FRP group visit with Aldi

March 3, 2022

Last week, PCF Programme Officer, Fiona, joined Georgina Brooks, Aldi’s National Corporate Responsibility Assistant, at the Market Harborough Farm Resilience Programme group for their final core workshop.

Delivered by Charles Skelton of Savills. The group worked through creating business plans, and during breakout sessions discussed the best route to making changes and implementing new plans to their farm businesses.

Georgina Brookes, National Corporate Responsibility Assistant at Aldi said: “After a challenging two years of the pandemic, I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to attend the fourth workshop of The Prince’s Countryside Fund’s Farm Resilience Programme on business planning and managing change held by Savills. The session was engaging and informative throughout, sparking discussion and debate amongst the group, while highlighting key difficulties that family businesses are facing at this challenging time for British Agriculture. It was great to network with the farmers and see first-hand the benefit that our sponsorship delivers to the farming community. We look forward to the three years ahead and the growth of our partnership with The Prince’s Countryside Fund.”
