“We were delighted to raise as much as we did and show our support for such a special charity” – Loddon Young Farmers reap what they sow after selling Christmas trees for EACH

Young farmers proved the cream of the crop after delivering a belated Christmas present to East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH).

Loddon Young Farmers Club joined forces to sell Christmas trees from a pub car park in Thurton – in the process raising in the region of £1,000.

They had already raised £500 at their annual dinner and dance, held at Sprowston Manor Hotel in November.

Jenny Green is treasurer for Loddon Young Farmers Club, which has 42 members between the ages of 15 and 28 and is part of Norfolk Young Farmers.

She said: “We were delighted to raise as much as we did and show our support for such a special charity.

“It’s local to us and it was a privilege to learn more about EACH’s work, during a recent visit to The Nook.

“It was a real team effort and all our members pulled together, giving up their time, to help sell the Christmas trees, over a couple of weekends in December.

“There was a lovely atmosphere and our thanks also go to everyone who supported us, plus Hailey and Polo, the landlords of The George and Dragon pub.

“They let us use their car park free of charge and it proved a perfect base to sell the trees from.”

Jenny and charity secretary Alfie Barber met EACH Senior Community Fundraiser Ellie Miller during their visit to The Nook, handing over a cheque for £1,500.

“It was a real pleasure to meet them both,” said Ellie.

“Loddon Young Farmers Club did us proud and showed such great community spirit, volunteering their time to help raise vital funds.

“We’re extremely grateful and hopefully we can work together in the future.”
