RSABI sadness on news of the death of its Honorary President

05 September 2007

RSABI has expressed its great sadness on the news of the death of its Honorary President, His Grace The 9th Duke of Buccleuch.

The charity’s Chief Executive, Dr Maurice Hankey said… “The Duke became President of The Royal Scottish Agricultural Benevolent Institution, our predecessor, shortly after succeeding to the title in 1973. He continued in that role, leading and influencing its work until the charity’s incorporation in 2005, since when he had been our Honorary President. He was a dedicated supporter of our work in many ways and cared deeply about the charity’s role in helping people with backgrounds in farming, forestry and other rural estate roles who were experiencing hardship. “The Duke was a pillar of continuity in a rapidly changing world and will be sadly missed by everyone involved with this charity”.
