Throughout December the Young Farmers’ Clubs of Ulster (YFCU) with the help of Calor, ran Christmas events across the counties aiming to connect with the local community and help those most in need.
To kick off the events, local care homes were invited to attend the annual YFCU choir festival to enjoy some festive singing and a wide range of songs.
Clubs in Co Down got together to collect gifts for the Cash For Kids NI Mission Christmas, hosting a coffee morning for local families, with a very special surprise guest, who arrived in style on his tractor lead sleigh.
BMWR YFC took a visit to Down Right Brilliant, the Newry and Mourne Down Syndrome Support Group, where they spent the day getting to know all the families involved.
Clubs in Co Londonderry and Armagh visited the Salvation Army to pass on all the presents they had collected.
In Co Fermanagh, Kesh YFC chose Women’s Aid as their local charity, and hosted a handover in their club hall.
With more events due to take place in the coming week and already more than 300 gifts being distributed across Northern Ireland, the YFC Christmas campaign has been a great success, connecting the members to their local community, and helping spread the festive spirit.
