National Federation of Young Farmers' Clubs

Fun, Learning, and Achievement

03 March 2016

The NFYFC is calling on all of its clubs and county federations to show their love for their community by taking part in the “Countryside Challenge”.

In December, The NFYFC received funding from the Cabinet Office and Pears Foundation to progress the work of Youth Social Action. As such, the Federation is now looking to support five community projects per quarter until the summer of 2017. This will be done by providing tools, resources and training to get them started, as well as offering an amount of enabling money. 

One project that clubs are being encouraged to get involved with is “Clean for the Queen”. This is a campaign to clean up Britain in preparation for the 90th birthday of Her Majesty the Queen, patron of NFYFC.

Mark Hurst, chairman of the NFYFC’s Personal Development steering group, said: “The Countryside Challenge is an opportunity for YFC members to provide a service to help their local community. This could be helping elderly people within the area or launching a project that meets the needs of the local community. 

“We are calling on all of our YFCs to join with their local council and 'Clean for the Queen'. This campaign is perfect for Young Farmers as not only will it help their local community, but it will help with the celebrations of the patron of their Federation.”

For more information about the Countryside Challenge, please speak to NFYFC’s youth development officer, Cath Sykes. Information about the “Clean for the Queen” campaign can be found at:
