Pembrokeshire YFC’s Big Adventure

Event: Pembrokeshire YFC’s Big Adventure

Date Held: May 1st, 2018

Organiser: Non Thorne

Venue: Haverfordwest - Blackpool

Contact: Pembrokeshire YFC

Pembrokeshire Young Farmers Club will be cycling to Blackpool for the National Federation of Young Farmers Club’s AGM in May, raising money for three great charities: Prostate Cymru, Wales Air Ambulance and Pembrokeshire YFC.

Non Thorne, from Tiers cross YFC, decided to take on a unique challenge during her year as YFC County Chairman. Elected as Pembrokeshire YFC Chairman in September 2017 Non wanted to create a challenge that would bring club members together, trying something new and raising money for charity, something the young farmers are a dab hand at.

The 250-mile journey will take four days to complete and Non will be joined by a team of keen YFC cyclists dubbed “Non’s Riders”. The team will leave Haverfordwest on 1st May, arriving in Oswestry on 2nd May and Liverpool on 3rd May. All being well the group will arrive in Blackpool on Friday 4th May for the start of the AGM weekend.

Miss Thorne said, “Each year the YFC County Chairman chooses their own unique challenge or fundraiser and this year I thought I’d push the boundaries with an endurance challenge. Over 5000 young farmers will descend on Blackpool for the AGM in May, most arriving by car, bus or train. However, a group of us from Pembrokeshire YFC will be putting on our Lycra, pumping up our tyres and cycling all the way.

“I’m far more comfortable in the show ring with my Hereford cattle than on a bike but that is what YFC is about: pushing yourself to try something new in a fun and friendly way. We are raising money for Prostate Cymru, Wales Air Ambulance and Pembrokeshire YFC and welcome any donations.”
