Spalding and District Young Farmers’ Club have been dishing out the proceeds of their recent fundraising efforts.

Representatives of two good causes were able to attend a presentation at one of the group’s weekly meetings to pick up a contribution from the club’s annual ball.

Guide Dogs for the Blind received £500 as the club’s chosen charity for the year.

Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance took away £200 afterYoung Farmers heard a talk about the charity’s work.

Member Oliver Wilson said: “As members of the farming community we all know someone who has been helped by the air ambulance and you never know when you are going to need it yourself, so we always help out with a donation when we can.”

Spalding and District Young Farmers’ Club is open to ten to 26-year-olds and meets every Wednesday at Spalding Rugby Club.

Anyone interested is welcome to pop along to any meeting to find out more.
