Supporting the farming community

Britain's Fittest Farmer was launched by Farmers Weekly in 2018 as a fun and friendly way to get farmers thinking and talking about their physical and mental health, to make sure they are in top condition to run their business.

This year, we have partnered with three amazing charities and are asking for donations to support their incredible work within the farming industry:

The Farming Community Network: Supporting farmers and farming families through difficult times.

RSABI: Providing emotional, practical and financial support to families across the agricultural sector.

The Farm Safety Foundation: Raising awareness of farm safety among young farmers.

Your donation will be split equally between these three charities and your contribution will help spread awareness and directly support these amazing organisations – thank you.
