They might be nearly 200 miles apart - but when a crisis hits, distance is no object for YFCs.

After flooding in Reeth in August, members of Newport Pagnell YFC in Buckinghamshire Federation of Young Farmers' Clubs collected forage for farmers in the area, organised a lorry and travelled the 200 miles to deliver it!

The club finally met up with members from Reeth YFC in Yorkshire today too after making the forage donation arrangements with them on the phone.

Newport Pagnell YFC's President Kirsty Singer said: "So lovely to see two clubs so far away from each other getting together. I am a very proud president."

The charity Forage Aid that is supporting farmers during the recent flooding crisis has thanked YFCs for their invaluable support and says its current action plan will ensure that the goodwill of YFC members and their hard work provides maximum benefit to those affected.

Now that livestock safety has been secured, a storage and future distribution system for forage will be put into action.

To ensure that Forage Aid is not overwhelmed by YFCs’ generosity, please use the following weblink to pledge your intended support or use the Forage Aid contacts: 07967 219991 or email Forage Aid.

The charity will then be able to log, plan and contact you to ensure that they can successfully co-ordinate future work
