Big Farmhouse Breakfast Nets Over £4,000 for Charity

The annual Yorkshire “Charity Big Farmhouse Breakfast” has raised £4,270 for Yorkshire Cancer Research.

Taking a well-earned rest from their 2008 Charity Big Breakfast duties are organisers and helpers. Host Patricia Knox is seated far left, in front of co-organiser Jane Thornhill, who runs St Giles Farm B&B in Catterick Bridge.

A total of 130 traditional farmhouse breakfasts were served up at last week’s two-day event (Wed and Thurs, Jan 23 & 24), hosted by Patricia Knox at Mill Close Farm, Patrick Brompton, Bedale, and fellow Yorkshire members of Farm Stay UK, the country’s largest network of farm-based accommodation providers.

The fund-raiser formed part of a national promotion run by the Home Grown Cereals Authority to highlight the importance of beginning the day with a proper breakfast, along with the quality of local and regional produce.

The Yorkshire charity kitty was boosted by £750 matched funding from the Bedale branch of Barclays, while food sponsors included the newly formed East Yorkshire egg marketing co-operative EggSell, which provided 30 dozen free-range eggs.

Mrs Knox thanked all Big Breakfastees for their attendance, along with sponsors, local food companies who donated breakfast fare and others who gave raffle prizes.
