Riverside Feeds Re-branding Announcement October 22, 2018

We are excited to announce an important change at Riverside Feeds. As of the 1st of December they will be re-branding to Duffields.

Duffields (South West) Ltd acquired Riverside Feeds in November 2015. After three successful years under the Duffields umbrella we feel the time is now right to move Riverside Feeds over to the Duffields branding.

This change will take place from December and over the next few months you may see the stationery and bags change from the Riverside Feeds logo over to the Duffields logo.  Another change will be invoices and statements which will be on Duffields header paper. Other than the stationery, the contacts and methods of payment will remain the same.

As a group, and under the Duffields brand, Riverside will remain a family run business and will continue to provide the good service and quality animal feed you have come to know and trust.

We have done our Bit!…Trade Charity Bike Ride 2018 May 21, 2018

All 4 sites took part in their respective legs of the 4000 mile around the country charity bike rides covering well over 100 miles!

To date we have raised £2600 ,which will be matched by Duffields Ltd

 

All monies raised will be donated to the FCN, a charity that supports the farming community through times of stress, anxiety, depression affecting both farm households and farm businesses, working with and supporting them as they seek to resolve their problems.

 

So why do we need your help?

  • With British farming facing deep uncertainty in the coming years, the workload of FCN volunteers is expected to increase significantly.
  • FCN relies solely on donations and grants in order to support the farming community.
  • Its costs approximately £1,500 per day to run the organisation.
  • They work very closely with other charities to deliver the support to the Farming community.
  • The majority of the FCN’s income is spent on running the national helpline, insurance, training and covering the Volunteer’s expenses.

Thank you very much for your support to this fantastic cause. Your donation truly means so much to the Grain and Feed Trade and the Farming Community Network. Every single penny donated is appreciated as the FCN relies solely on donations and grants to support the farming community.
