YOUNG farmers’ fundraising efforts during the last year resulted in a cheque for £1,574.72 being presented to the Great North Air Ambulance Service

Members of Staindrop YFC took part in events such as carol singing, a muck chuck, raffles at social events and a coffee morning.

Secretary Alice Wood said: “I would like to thank all club members, past and present, who have helped out in any way to help raise such a fabulous amount of money for our chosen charity this year.

“Also, a huge thank you to the community who supported our events. Without your support we wouldn’t have been able to raise what we have.”
