Barbour, the outdoor and country clothing manufacturers, has teamed up with the Daily Mail and Barclays Bank to launch a ribbon lapel campaign. The ribbon will allow people show their continued support for rural and farming communities.

A spokesperson for Barbour said: “The Barbour crisis appeal will marshal public resources into the core areas of need and ensure the continued funding to rural communities, even though their suffering may no longer be in the news headlines.”

The lapel ribbons are dark green and are on sale at participating Barbour dealerships and branches of Barclays Bank. All funds raised will go to the Daily Mail Farm Aid appeal.
