National Federation of Young Farmers' Clubs

Fun, Learning, and Achievement

Members from Hope Valley YFC in Derbyshire have been auctioning themselves off to the highest bidder, all in the name of charity.

Over 200 people attended the club's annual Harvest Auction, held at the Travellers Rest in Brough, which has become a popular event in the local calendar. The club auctioned off various items, from cakes and pheasants to a whole day of work. The biggest money spinner was an offer to shear 150 ewes, which made £160.

Overall the club raised an impressive £2500 for their chosen charities Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS) and Community First Responders.

Club member Alice Helliwell explains why they chose these charities;
“Three families in the Hope Valley have been affected by SADS in recent years and the Community First Responders help many people each year in isolated communities such as the High Peak. Hope Valley YFC would just like to thank the local businesses that supported the event and everyone who attended.”
