Wormleighton Young Farmers Club raised almost £3,000 for Katharine House Hospice at its annual summer party held at Trafford House Farm in Chipping Warden.

Chairlady of Wormleighton YFC, Amy Brown, said: “Tug of war is taken really seriously amongst Warwickshire Young Farmers; so it made a good change to have a light-hearted competition. The river element always draws a good crowd and it was great to see so many people supporting their teams.”

Other attractions included lamb racing, bale throwing, sumo wrestling and more, followed by a barbecue.

The fun day was followed by a festival-themed open-air party, where several hundred young farmers danced the night away.

Miss Brown said: “I’m so pleased that we are able to donate £2,970 to Katharine House Hospice, the hard work from our members certainly paid off. It has really inspired us to make next year bigger and better.”

The cheque was handed to Katharine House Hospice on November 13.
