Pembrokeshire YFC Chairman is swapping the show ring for the saddle as she looks to complete a mammoth cycle challenge.
Non Thorne, from Tiers Cross YFC has decided to take on a unique challenge during her year as YFC County Chairman; by cycling from Haverfordwest to the NFYFC AGM in Blackpool.
The 250 mile journey will take four days to complete and Non will be joined by a team of keen YFC cyclists, dubbed ‘Non’s Riders’.
Miss Thorne said: “Each year the YFC County Chairman chooses their own unique challenge or fundraiser, and this year I thought I’d push the boundaries with an endurance challenge.
“Over 5,000 young farmers will descend on Blackpool for the AGM in May, most arriving by car, bus or train. However a group of us from Pembrokeshire YFC will by putting on our Lycra, pumping up our tyres and cycling all the way.
“I’m far more comfortable in the show ring with my Hereford cattle than on a bike, but this is what YFC is about: pushing yourself to try something new in a fun and friendly way.
“We will be raising money for Prostate Cymru, Wales Air Ambulance and Pembrokeshire YFC.”
All donations would be greatly received, please head over to our JustGiving page ‘pembsyfcbigadventure’ or send directly to the Pembrokeshire YFC office or Non Thorne.
