About the Club
Warleggan Young Farmers Club (YFC) was founded in 1947, and is much more than a social club – it is a hard working club who work together well especially in fund raising for various charities, and who over the years have raised a tremendous amount for such organisations as Macmillan Nursing Care, FLEET, Cornwall Hospice Care, Children’s Cancer Care, Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institution, Help for Heroes, Macmillan Cancer Support, Parkinsons UK…
Our local YFC is affiliated to the National Federation of Young Farmers’ Club whose motto is “Fun, Learning and Achievement”. The NFYC is the largest organisation of rural youth in the UK. Each YFC is completely autonomous, run by the members, although there are Club Leaders available for any guidance that is required and an Advisory Committee made up mainly of members’ parents and interested individuals who support the Club in all aspects.
Warleggan and District Young Farmers Club (charity no. 275709) is an active local member of the Cornwall Confederation of Young Farmers’ Clubs.
- to advance the education of young members of the public at large in agriculture, home crafts, country life and related subjects; and
- in the interests of the social welfare of such members to provide and promote the provision of the facilities for recreation and other leisure-time occupations, being facilities which will improve their conditions of life and will assist in the development of their spiritual and mental capacities, self-reliance and individual responsibility so that they may grow to full maturity as individuals and members of the community.
