The Rix Petroleum team attended their 69th Driffield Agricultural Show in East Yorkshire this week, which is one of the biggest events in the Rix calendar.
We would like to say a huge THANK YOU to everyone that visited our marquee to have a chat with our sales team, take a break from the hot sun and enjoy a homemade scone or two.
All the hard work that went into building our stand paid off when we won the 2nd prize for the best Agricultural exhibition stand.
A big pull for the crowd was the F1 racing car and simulator, that took pride of place on our stand and were lent to us by Total Oils. We had lots of people trying to get the fastest lap and win a bottle of champagne.
The lovely ladies from our group charity of the year, Macmillan Cancer Support were collecting donations on our stand, so thank you to all those that dug deep, their buckets felt very heavy at the end of the day.
Rix Petroleum and our storage tank supplier Envirostore had the pleasure of donating a brand new tank to the Driffield Agricultural Society. This tank will be kept at the showground to hold GasOil for their tractors. We have a long history of supporting the Agricultural Society, so it’s a pleasure to help them out when we can.
With next year’s show now less than a year away, we need to start planning the 70th anniversary of Rix supporting the Driffield Show.
