Northern Ireland Young Farmers care for their Neighbours

The Young Farmers Club recently took delivery of products to help them with their winter Know Your Neighbour event. Run in conjunction with Calor Gas the Know your Neighbours campaign will be supported by lots of Northern Ireland’s Young Farmers.

Northern Ireland Young Farmers care for their Neighbours

Young Farmer Clubs have been encouraged distribute care packages to their neighbours.  The Care packages are made up of biscuits, tea bags, a mug, and promotional materials such as t-shirts and posters. The Care packages will be shared with the local community. Care packages are available for Young Farmers clubs from the YFC HQ.

The Young Farmers Club

Young Farmers’ Clubs of Ulster (YFCU) was founded in 1929 by W.S Armour with the first club being established in Limavady. Over 80 years later, YFCU is still going from strength to strength with approx 60 clubs throughout Northern Ireland.

YFCU represents the interests and aspirations of approx 3,000 members aged 12 – 25 years of age.

A further 3,500 rural young people are estimated to take part in and benefit from local Young Farmers’ Club activities and events.

At the heart of the YFCU is an annual calendar of internally and externally accredited courses, competitions and events that are delivered under one of three main categories: agriculture; culture and the arts; and sports and social events. The calendar is designed to ensure that the programme of work offers something for everyone, from all backgrounds and abilities and at all levels of the association. (Source)
