What a night! Congratulations to the winners – and all of the finalists – of the YFC Achiever Awards 2022, sponsored by Kärcher Home & Garden.

NFYFC’s annual YFC Achiever Awards, which recognise the achievements of members during the previous membership year.  Due to the pandemic, this was the first year the awards had been held in person. More than 400 young farmers, supporters attended the event at the National Conference Centre in Birmingham on Saturday 11 February, which was hosted by NFYFC President and former international rugby referee Nigel Owens MBE.

Nigel Owens MBE said: “It was an absolute honour to host NFYFC’s first YFC Achiever Awards ceremony. It was a very special evening that brought together members, supporters and alumni to celebrate the achievements of some amazing rural young people that are involved in YFC.

“NFYFC's YFC Achiever Awards are a positive acknowledgement of the great work that young people in rural communities are doing every day. From charity fundraisers to enterprising initiatives that improve the rural economy – YFCs and their members are making a difference. All the finalists and the winners should be very proud.”
