A youth club has donated nearly £1,000 to a charity which helps and supports cancer patients and their families.

Beacon Young Farmers, which meets at Seaton Ross Village Hall, has raised funds in a variety of ways for York Against Cancer, which has been the club’s nominated charity for the previous year.

It has sold cakes, sang Christmas carols and held a dinner dance in aid of the charity.

The club has presented a cheque for £960 to Julie Russell from York Against Cancer.

The funds will be put towards a new mini bus to help transport cancer patients to and from Leeds General Infirmary.

The National Federation of Young Farmers’ Clubs is one of the largest rural youth organisations in the UK dedicated to young people who have a love for agriculture and rural life. It has more than 25,000 members and 644 clubs.
