Members of a thriving East Yorkshire Young Farmers Club have been kitted out in new rugby shirts thanks to the generosity of a Bewholme family business.

Elliott Eggs has a long association with Brandesburton Young Farmers Club that goes back over half a century and includes two generations of the Elliott family.

Tom Elliott, who founded Elliott Eggs with his parents and brothers, Mark and Phil, was delighted to support to Brandesburton Young Farmers Club.

He said: “I attended Young Farmers from 13 and, when I was too old to be a member, I became a club leader, so we’re happy to support this thriving club that contributes a great deal to the local community.”

Brandesburton YFC secretary Lucinda Maltas expressed thanks on behalf of the club’s current members.

“We are very grateful to Elliott Eggs who have supported us for many years by hosting events and sponsoring clothing,” she said.

Elliott Eggs was launched in 2007 after the Elliott family spotted a gap in the market to supply farm fresh free range eggs to businesses throughout East and North Yorkshire.

Having researched their idea, they commissioned a packing station to grade and pack the free range eggs that are produced on the family farm.

Today, they supply eggs both locally and nationwide.

Brandesburton YFC meets on Wednesdays at Brandesburton Parish Hall.
