National Federation of Young Farmers' Clubs

Fun, Learning, and Achievement

30 January 2014

NFYFC’s National Chairman of Council Claire Worden has vowed to not touch a drop of alcohol in February as part of the Farmers Guardian’s month-long dryathlon in celebration of the newspaper’s 170th anniversary.

To mark the anniversary, as well as a souvenir edition of the newspaper, Farmers Guardian colleagues and key members of the industry will take part in a dryathlon to raise money for the Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institution (RABI) and Royal Scottish Agricultural Benevolent Institution (RSABI).

Claire will be booze-free along with Welsh Woman farmer of the Year Cheryl Thomas and husband Elwyn as well as key members of the National Sheep and Beef Associations – among other leading figures.

The challenge is on as Claire will be chairing her first Council meeting on Sunday 9 February, which is usually part of a social weekend with other YFC council members.

Claire said: “I was really keen to take part in this challenge as RABI do a great job and have given incredible support to many YFC members and friends.

“It’s going to be a tough month – but I’m sure I’ll get through it with the support of members! Anyone is very welcome to join me...”

You can support the Farmers Guardian and Claire in the following ways:

  1. By making a donation on-line at Just Giving or why not join in Booze-free February? Rest your liver for a month and donate your savings from not drinking.
  2. If you just cannot live without a tipple, you can simply donate the price of a pint.
