Video: Young Farmers raise almost £1,000 for charity

Thousands of Young Farmers have landed in Blackpool for this year’s National Federation of Young Farmers’ Clubs’ (NFYFC) Annual Convention, raising more than £900 for charity as they arrived.

The club members showed their amazing generosity by donating hundreds of pounds for The Farming Community Network (FCN), as the 2018 extravaganza got under way.

NFYFC members dug deep to raise a grand total of £918.28 in just under an hour, as young farmers arrived in their droves at the Las Vegas of the North West for a well-deserved blowout.

Convention-goers were asked to make a donation to FCN in exchange for one of 1,000 T-shirts on offer at the Farmers Weekly stand during registration on Friday afternoon (4 May).

All of the cash raised will go to the charity, which helps more than 6,000 farmers a year with its 24-hour hotline, providing assistance with farming, business, personal and mental health issues.
