The Suffolk Sheep Society Office Team, along with mascot ‘Cyclo the Suffolk’ are going on a virtual 1348 km cycle run from Land’s End to John O Groats in support of The Farm Safety Foundation “Yellow Wellies”
Rising concern over the continuing high level of fatal and life-changing injury accidents on farms prompted NFU Mutual to set up a charitable foundation to help all farmers, and especially young farmers, work more safely. The Foundation works closely with farmers, the farming unions and a range of farming organisations, including the Farm Safety Partnerships of England, Wales, and Northern Ireland, to help reduce the toll of fatal and serious injury accidents which, regrettably, have made farming the most dangerous occupation in the UK. The Foundation’s ‘Yellow Wellies’ campaign specifically targets young farmers aged 16 to 40 years of age.
A bit of fun, some exercise and raising funds and awareness for a very worthwhile cause. We need all the encouragement we can get so please support us by giving!
