Fun, Learning, and Achievement

31 March 2021

The Give it Some YFC Welly relay has raised more than £20,000 for County Federations and YFC members have been getting even more creative in the ways they are covering their miles.

Clubs in Pembrokeshire FYFC raised more than £1,300 by each choosing a fun way to cover the distance between each YFC and pass the welly on. Hermon YFC chose to do a Welly ‘egg and spoon’ relay, while Brawdy Haycastle YFC did a litter pick for 10 miles wearing wellies. Others chose to wear fancy dress, cycled or skipped in wellies – and one club, Martletwy YFC, even did a 10-mile Zumba!

Most counties have now completed their leg in the welly relay but some are still getting ready to take part.

Staffordshire FYFC kick off their relay tomorrow where members plan to cover their 500 miles by any form as long as it doesn't involve an engine.

County Chairwoman Amy Boothby (pictured) will cover the first six miles of the challenge by walking from Staffordshire County Showground into Weston and Sandon.

Amy said: “The last 12 months have been difficult for everyone, so it is reassuring to be able to launch the #GiveItSomeYFCWelly challenge which I think will be a great opportunity to bring our members together again. It also encourages everyone to exercise in the fresh air to help them with their mental wellbeing, which in YFC, we all know is so important.”
