They have chosen the Calvert Trust at Keswick to be the recipient of their hard earned funds as is provides excellent activity holidays for young people in Cumbria with disabilities.

John Tunstall, District Chairman who along with Tracey Dargue encouraged the young farmers to enter said, “This is only one of the many charity events that Young Farmers do to make money for charities – but it is possibly the most strenuous.

"Next weekend we’ll be clearing a disused railway line at Hincaster helping the Hincaster Trailway Group make it into a wheelchair friendly bridleway.”
