Charity cheque presentation

This week a cheque was presented to last years charity, the British Heart Foundation. Last years Chairman, Nathan Dinnis and Secretary Lauren Cornelius returned along with Hazel Cartwright from the BHF to make the presentation. £2592 was donated to the charity from fundraising that was done between October 2014 - 2015. This includes activities such as the annual dung run, and the Jack Glanville entertainments evening that was held in March 2015.

Also this evening, we had a talk from past Launceston YFC member, Edward Humber. Ed currently works for the NFU as an advisor, and has been involved with the task of mitigating bovine TB. Ed described the challenges the NFU are faced with when dealing with the government and lobbying for changes to legislation, and told us what we can expect farming to do in the future.
