Farmers Guardian to help support Rural+ campaign at Annual Convention

Farmers Guardian to help support Rural+ campaign at Annual Convention

Farmers Guardian will be doing their bit to help battle rural isolation, by supporting the NFYFC's Rural+ campaign at this year's Annual Convention.

The weekly newspaper will once again be making its presence felt in Torquay, giving out t-shirts during the first day of registration, proceeds from which will go to help young people dealing with mental health problems.

Rural+ was launched by former NFYFC Chairman, Claire Worden, in 2014 to raise awareness of the effects of rural isolation and social exclusion in young people growing up in rural areas.

Last year, Young Farmers helped Farmers Guardian raise more than £1,000 for YoungMinds from their t-shirt giveaway at the Annual Convention in Blackpool. Following that success, the Farmers Guardian have printed 2,000 exclusive t-shirts for this year's event in Torquay, which will be available on Friday afternoon during registration.

This year, the paper will be donating its funds to the Farming Community Network (FCN), a Charity which helps UK farmers deal with mental health issues. Young Farmers have helped to raise thousands of pounds for the Farming Community Network over the last 12 months. Fundraising activities have included sponsored bike rides and even the launch of a charity single by Essex FYFC.

In order to receive your t-shirt at Convention, simply register by clicking here and donating £1 on the day of registration.
