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

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.
