Young Farmers raise money for charity
8:00am Monday 4th November 2013 in Devon
THE CULM Valley Young Farmers Club has raised an incredible £4075 for children’s charity CHICKS which provides free respite breaks for disadvantaged children.
The amount was raised through various fundraising events including cake stalls, barbeque, tug of war competition and the club’s annual ball which was attended by around six hundred guests.
CHICKS Community Fundraiser Mick Ryan said, “CHICKS is very grateful to the club members of Culm Valley YFC for nominating us as their official charity and raising such a large sum of money. This support will go towards funding the free respite breaks we offer for disadvantaged children from all over UK, including hundreds from many areas of Devon.’’
