Young Farmers fundraise for The Oxford Hospital Trust

28 September 2018

THE Faringdon Young Farmers have been raising money this past year for The Oxford Hospital Trust, specifically for the Breast Care Department within the Churchill Hospital.

Each year the 12 Young Farmer clubs throughout Oxfordshire choose a charity to support, and following the diagnosis and treatment of one of their club leaders, Faringdon Seniors decided to do all they could to raise funds to support the Breast Cancer Care department within the Churchill Hospital.

The 40 plus members of the club threw themselves into raising money through a variety of activities which included cake sales, and in June, 12 members took on the challenge of climbing Ben Nevis.

At their recent AGM, Club Leader Tina Breakspear presented a cheque for £6,482.67 to the doctors who supported her with her treatment.

There are two Young Farmers clubs in Faringdon, the Junior club is for members from 10 to 16years of age and the Senior club from ages 17 to 26.

Young Farmers is an amazing organisation to be part of who offer unique opportunities and experiences as well as a varied social and competition program.

They are now at the start of a new membership year so if you would like to join please contact Amber at
