Charity & Fundraising
Abingdon Young Farmers is a registered charity, we raise money throughout the year to put back into the club for it to continue to run successfully. Each year we select a local charity to donate to. Throughout the year we take part in a number of fundraising events to raise money for local charities.
Our chosen charities for 2017/2018 is:
THE BRITISH HEART FOUNDATION
The British Heart Foundation funds research to beat the world's biggest killers. They fund research each year into all heart and circulatory diseases and the things that cause them, including heart diseases, stroke, vascular dementia and diabetes - they are all under their microscope. So far, this research has given us machines that can restart hearts, the ability to fix arteries in tiny babies, devices to correct heartbeats, the power to give someone a heart they weren’t born with, and so much more.
Charities we have previously supported:
Each year we select a new charity to donate to.
We aim to support local charities rather than national so that our funding can make a difference to the organisation. If you run a charity that you think would benefit from our fundraising we would love to hear from you.
The charities are selected by vote at the annual AGM in September.
