Dorset YFC have passed the welly to Montgomery YFC today as part of the National Federation of Young Farmers’ Clubs #GiveItSomeYFCWelly relay! Over the next 7 days, members from across the county will be walking, running, cycling or riding 180 miles to raise money for Montgomery YFC, which is the distance between all 18 Clubs in the County!When lockdown restrictions forced YFCs to stop meeting, feelings of isolation and loneliness for young people intensified. In particular, our key worker farming members, who regularly spend long days working alone, desperately missed their weekly YFC meetings to connect with others away from the farm. It’s more important than ever for the 18 YFCs in Montgomeryshire to be operating again so that they can help improve the wellbeing of more than 600 members across the County, by providing opportunities to meet, learn new skills and be actively involved in their communities again during these challenging times.
Please support our campaign so we can continue to provide opportunities and important connections for rural young people across Montgomeryshire!
