Probus YFC’s Banger Rally Challenge

Sam, Dan and Josh from Probus YFC took their Mystery Machine on the road as part of the “Banger Rally Challenge” last year, travelling from Cornwall to Pompeii on an epic, once-in-a-lifetime adventure. Jinkies! In this video, Sam Oatey explains why they chose us as their charity and why they are continuing to support us. Thanks Guys.

Ede’s Little Big Toddle

Ede Collin and her family decided that lockdown would be the perfect time to recognise the role that farmers play as key workers – especially given all the challenges they have faced in 2020 – and say a big THANK YOU for their efforts.

Ede undertook a challenge to complete a 600m ‘Little Big Toddle’ across her fields… This may not seem far to you, but Ede only has little legs and is only 13 months old! Yes, it was a challenge, but she smashed it! A huge thank you Ede, her mum Katie and all the Collin family for their support.

Joe’s sponsored beard grow

In August 2019, tractor driver Joe Chandler contacted us telling us that he had a hairbrained scheme – he would grow his beard for 8 months with the aim to raise awareness and tackle the stigma around mental health in agriculture. He said, “hair goes nothing” and, although he didn’t like it at first, it grew on him! Joe did an amazing job supporting us and we are so grateful – thank you!

Kilraughts YFC 600 miles

Kilraughts YFC in North Antrim is located in one of the most beautiful areas in Northern Ireland. This is Game of Thrones country so why not raise an army of young farmers to march/cycle/run 600 miles in one week and cover the area between all the clubs in Ulster in support of our Mind Your Head campaign. This formidable farming army have conquered their goal and we proclaim that, although they walked 600 miles… we’re sure they could walk 600 more… Thanks Guys.

Debbie braves the shave

British Sugar worker Debbie Wilkinson set herself a sweet challenge and didn’t even try to candy coat it. Debbie speaks to growers day-in, day-out and is very aware of the growing issue of poor mental health in the industry. Debbie bravely decided to do a sponsored head shave. She didn’t even mullet over and yes, this was a pretty bald move but smooth operator Debbie took it in her stride and still looks gorgeous with her low maintenance high style look! You’re a star Debbie!
