Pembs YFC’s Big Total

Pembrokeshire YFC’s Big Adventure cycling team, who cycled four days and over 250 miles from Haverfordwest to Blackpool for the National Federation of Young Farmers Club’s annual convention in May, have raised a brilliant final total of £27,000.

Led by county chairman Non Thorne, who only thought five or six cyclists would join her on the challenge, not 26, recently presented the funds raised to three worthwhile charities. The team dubbed “Non’s Riders” wore their cycling jerseys to the presentation. Prostate Cymru received £15,000, Wales Air Ambulance received £10,000 and £2000 was donated to Pembrokeshire YFC to purchase a mobile defibrillator. Members of the Pembrokeshire Friends of Prostate Cymru committee, urologist Neil Fenn and Prostate Cymru’s ambassador Eddie Butler attended the presentation on behalf of the charity.

Having handed out the cheques at the recent Pembrokeshire YFC annual general meeting, Non said: “I wanted to do something that brought people together, to do something they wouldn’t normally do and raise money for charity. I had no idea however that we would raise so much, which will help so many locally.

“There are too many people to thank, including the support crew, the sponsors and those who donated. However I would like to thank the cyclists, who made it a once in a lifetime adventure.”
