Cornwall’s Cycling Challenge 2016

Members of Cornwall FYFC are once again preparing for another gruelling fundraising challenge ahead of this year's NFYFC Annual Convention in Blackpool.

Every year, a group of Young Farmers from the county federation, called the "WotNot", take on a daunting method of travel to get to the Annual Convention in an attempt to raise thousands of pounds for charity.

This year's challenge has been organised by Cornwall's county chairman, Georgina Monk, and will see 25 "WotNotters" don their bike helmets and cycle over 350 miles to Blackpool in just six days. The challenge has been dubbed "Monkey's Magical Mystery Tour" and will raise money for MacMillan Cancer Support, a Charity that is very close to Georgina's heart.

Georgina said: "My Granny died of cancer three years ago and she was looked after in her final months by MacMillan Cancer nurses which, being 400 miles away, meant that we felt better that she was in safe hands. They also helped my Granddad deal with everything. Cancer affects so many people, and is an illness that has directly or indirectly affected everyone. In doing this challenge, we would like to raise money to make sure that these nurses are available to deliver the care that their patients and affected family member needs."

"Monkey's Magical Mystery Tour" will begin at the National Agricultural Centre, in Kenilworth, Warwickshire. The team will then head up to Scarborough, the home of Georgina's grandfather, before heading across the country to Blackpool. The team are aiming to arrive during registration at the Winter Gardens on Friday 6th May.

Georgina is hoping to raise £5,000 from this challenge. To make a donation, please visit the "WotNot" JustGiving page, or text CYFC37 £10 (or £1, £3, £5) to 70070.
