St Vincent’s Hospice is celebrating a year of outstanding fundraising by the West Renfrewshire Young Farmers, who have been fundraising for the hospice throughout the year, raising an incredible £7,500 for the hospice.

The West Renfrewshire Young Farmers recently celebrated their 80th Anniversary and they have had an incredibly busy year, from talent shows, auctions, livestock judging, concert dances, to gunge tanks and tractor pulls at their 80th Anniversary Field Day.

Throughout the year the West Renfrewshire Young Farmers have cultivated a community of support to help raise vital funds for the hospice. It costs over £6,000 per day for a full 24 hours of care, the funds raised by the West Renfrewshire Young Farmers and the wider community, will help to ensure that the hospice can continue to provide meaningful, specialist care to patients and families of Renfrewshire and North Ayrshire when they need it the most.

St Vincent’s Hospice are so thankful to have this amazing support and are grateful to have been given the opportunity to get involved with the events over the year, in particular, participating in the 1 tonne tractor pull during the 80th Anniversary Field Day.

Our Community, Corporate & Events Manager Emma Donald said “We are so grateful for this amazing support, the young farmers are such a fantastic group to have support the hospice. Vice Chairman’s, Linsey Campbell and John Miller from the Young Farmers Club have been an absolute joy to work with, their energy has been amazing and thanks to them, we have had the opportunity to be involved with new events and challenges. The West Renfrewshire Young Farmers are an amazing group of young people who help other young people learn new skills, make friends and make a difference in their local community.”

Linsey Campbell, Vice Chairman of The West Renfrewshire Young Farmers said “We decided to raise funds for St Vincent’s Hospice as it is a local charity that is right in the heart of our community. We can’t thank everyone enough for helping to make the field day possible, to everyone who donated auction prizes, to the Miller family for providing us the venue and to J & S Montgomery for providing us with a tractor for our tractor pull and to everyone who came along to support our 80th year!
