Young peo­ple’s fundraiser to help young farm­ers club

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Helping Others -

Young peo­ple have or­gan­ised a string of events to help raise money for Ash­ford’s Swan Young Farm­ers Club.

The fundrais­ers will be hosted by teenagers signed up to the Na­tional Ci­ti­zen Ser­vice pro­gramme, which is de­liv­ered by CXK.

Events in­clude a foot­ball fi­asco to­day (Thurs­day), at Pitch­side, in Stanhope Road, between 11am-2pm, a street col­lec­tion to­mor­row (Fri­day), in Ash­ford town cen­tre, and a Farm­ers Fair on Satur­day (Au­gust 30), at the Wa­ter­side Chil­dren’s Cen­tre, between noon and 4pm.

The Young Farm­ers Club, lo­cated at Swan Farm, off Cud­worth Road, is a non-gov­ern­ment funded or­gan­i­sa­tion that gives young peo­ple the op­por­tu­nity to ex­pe­ri­ence farm life.

Team mem­ber Ken­dra Clu- low said: “I think the club is a great way for chil­dren to gain work ex­pe­ri­ence and life skills, but sadly, due to the costs, not ev­ery­one can ben­e­fit from that.

“For our team it is an op­por­tu­nity to do some­thing pos­i­tive and pro­duc­tive.”

Project leader Molly Arthurs said: “The project means a lot to ev­ery­one in­volved. The Swan Farm Young Farm­ers Club were over­joyed when we told them we wanted to help and ev­ery­body has worked so hard for it. So do come along and sup­port them.”

CXK de­liv­ers a range of ser­vices across Kent to sup­port young peo­ple and families.

Na­tional Ci­ti­zen Ser­vice pro­grammes will run in au­tumn 2014 and spring 2015.
