Kilraughts Young Farmers Club 70th Year celebrations kicked off with our church service in Kilraughts First Presbyterian Church in October.

All money raised went to building schools in Uganda.

Following this we held a Christmas Hamper competition in which family’s within the club and local businesses donated items to a luxury hamper. This was won by Liz McAlister.

Fifteen of Kilraughts Y.F.C members decide to run the Belfast marathon hard work was put in to train for the marathon.

All money raised went towards cash for kids.

K. Y.F.C Fashion Show was in the Lodge Hotel on the 18th April.

We had a fantastic crowd and members from the club walked the cat walk along with members from Armoy WI.

The evening wouldn’t of been if it wasn’t for the great support from local business and friends and family. The evening was a great success.

We are pleased to say we raised an amazing £503.45 on the night which will all be going to our 70th year Charity Cash for kids.
