Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

We’re raising money for the Farm Safety Foundation and highlighting the challenges of mental health in agriculture. But equally, we want to raise awareness of why it’s so important to back British farmers, and British agriculture. There is so much uncertainty at the moment and this is all having a negative impact on mental health in agriculture.

Help me raise awareness!

To do so a team of farmers are driving a JCB Fasttrac around the outside of the UK in 8 days.

About the charity

The Farm Safety Foundation

Verified by JustGiving

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.
