Young farmers give helicopter a boost

Young people have donated £15,000 to charities helping the rural community, including £10,000 to Derbyshire Leicester and Rutland Air Ambulance.

North West Young Farmers, which includes Young Farmers clubs in Bakewell, Buxton and the Hope Valley, presented the money at its AGM on Monday.

The funds were raised through charity evenings and dances held during the past four years.

Helen’s Trust, Bakwell Nurses Station, Ashgate Hospice and Blythe House also received money.
