We raise awareness of farm safety to support the farmers of tomorrow.


Thanks for taking the time to visit our JustGiving page.

Coming from farming backgrounds ourselves, we know the many challenges that come with working in agriculture. This year we have decided to raise money for the Farm Safety Foundation, also known as Yellow Wellies. We have raised over £3000 through the sales of our calendar made with the help of our fellow farming friends. Thank you to everyone who has supported us so far. 

We are now taking on a mammoth task of a 24-hour milking Marathon!!

On Saturday 7th May we will be starting at 3am and powering through until Sunday morning at our county Chairman’s!

Through the charities ambitious educational programme, research and annual campaigns such as Farm Safety Week and Mind Your Head, they are tackling the stigma of risk taking and poor mental health in the farming industry. 85% of young farmers agree that there is a definite link between mental health and farm safety. Let's help our farmers and reduce these statistics. 

Lots of love,

Kate, Em and Fi

About the charity

The Farm Safety Foundation

RCN 1159000
Rising concern over the continuing high level of fatal and life-changing injury accidents on farms prompted NFU Mutual to set up a charitable foundation to help all farmers, and especially young farmers, work more safely. The Foundation works closely with farmers, the farming unions and a range of farming organisations, including the Farm Safety Partnerships of England, Wales, and Northern Ireland, to help reduce the toll of fatal and serious injury accidents which, regrettably, have made farming the most dangerous occupation in the UK. The Foundation's 'Yellow Wellies' campaign specifically targets young farmers aged 16 to 40 years of age.
