Young Farmers Aim For Rich Crop Of Fundraising Events

Posted 10:53AM on Thursday 30 April 2015

We’re delighted to have been chosen as one of two Charities of the Year by Ballywalter Young Farmers’ Association.

We will be working with the Association from April 2015 until March 2016. The fundraising events have already got off to a promising start. A quiz last month has raised £300, while a barbecue is planned for May and a treasure hunt for July. The group is also interested in finding out more about our work and what volunteering opportunities are available.

Our Chief Executive, Agnes Lunny, said: “It’s wonderful that Ballywalter Young Farmers have not only chosen to support us for a year, but that they are also showing such a keen interest in our work. Young people becoming more aware of the needs of others, particularly those with a learning disability, is the best way of breaking down barriers and making society more inclusive. We look forward to working with the group and we’ll be delighted to offer volunteering opportunities where possible.”
