National Federation of Young Farmers' Clubs

Fun, Learning, and Achievement

09 April 2019

It might have been a mucky job, but Falmouth YFC's annual dung run certainly proved profitable as the club are celebrating raising more than £2,500 from their hard work.   

The proceeds raised from the event will be split between the Sunrise Cancer Centre at the Royal Cornwall Hospital, Breage Pre-School and Falmouth YFC.

The annual Dung Run involved 30 members donning their wellies to fill over 1,000 bags of cattle manure and then jumping in tractors to deliver to gardens, allotments and flowerbeds across Falmouth and its surrounding areas.  

Club Chairman Ben Coleman said: "Being a Young Farmer is not just about tractors, cows and flat caps - it's so much more than that."

"Young Farmers is all about getting to meet like-minded people, to have fun and to learn new skills – and if in doing so, we can benefit local causes - then it makes being a member of YFC even more worth it."

Falmouth YFC is one of 20 YFC Clubs that make up the Cornwall Federation of Young Farmers’ Clubs and has around 28 members. The Dung Run is just one of the fundraising events the club hosts annually.

The club would like to thank everyone that kindly purchased bags of dung and also to the donors of the dung, the bags and the vehicles for delivering.
