Tea For Two?
Apr 13, 2023 • General
Young Farmers sprung into action in a bid to replenish funds that had been used to keep the district afloat during the pandemic.
Rosley Village Hall was the setting for the Cumbria YFC Northern District Fund Raising Afternoon Tea held on Sunday 8th April.
The original idea for the event came from Northern District Chair, Abigail Graham and Vice Chair Ella Batey as a means of raising some much needed funds for the Northern District of Cumbria YFC. Following almost 2 years of covid restrictions, the
The Northern District young farmer clubs worked together to provide food and fancies for the afternoon tea and also put their excellent waiting-on skills to good use on the actual day!
The young farmers were incredibly grateful to local businesses for sponsoring the event, with David Allen providing tea, coffee, sugar and the prize hamper, Pioneer Food Service giving butter and jam, The Co-op for their donation of tuna, bread, strawberries and cream, Cranstons for providing the ham, Katherines Jersey Milk for the milk, Applegarth Foods and Skitby for the loan of crockery, Walby Farm Park for donating the children’s food boxes and Dodd and Co, Travis Perkins, Paragon Veterinary Group and Carrs Billington for their kind sponsorship.
Over £1500 was made on the day and 110 afternoon teas were served. Abigail Graham was delighted with the turn out, commenting “Thank you to all those who supported our Afternoon Tea, either by donating towards the event, helping with baking and serving, or attending. It was a great success and has helped us to raise much needed funds for the District. It was lovely to see so many people in attendance, and we really appreciate all the support we received”.
