National Federation of Young Farmers' Clubs

Fun, Learning, and Achievement

22 October 2019

YFC clubs and counties are being urged to submit the results of their fundraising efforts for the membership year 2018-19 so they can be considered for one of two NFYFC trophies.

The Lionel Hill trophy and The Prince of Wales trophy are awarded to the YFC Club and County respectively that have raised the greatest amount of funds per member for charitable purposes over a 12 month period.

The trophies will be presented at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) in May 2020. Dartmouth YFC and Essex FYFC were awarded the trophies for their achievements in 2018 at the 2019 AGM.

Dartmouth YFC raised £17,000, with 18 members, meaning they had raised an impressive £944.44 per member.

Essex FYFC raised a total of £39,106.08 with 367 members, meaning they raised £106.56 per member.

The County’s winning formula, said last year’s County Chairman Jack Garwood, is the hard work the clubs put in to support those less fortunate than themselves.

“We all have a great time as Young Farmers and are pleased to be able to put a little back into something else we love,” said Jack. “All the clubs choose a mixture of national or local charities – causes that are close to their hearts.”

NFYFC received 14 County entries for the Prince of Wales Trophy last year, and the total raised from those counties was £489,478.84.

If every County Federation returned the details of their charity fundraising, NFYFC estimates YFCs raise in excess of £1.2m for charity.

Entries should be sent to Sandra Bromley before the closing date of 15 November 2019.
