ILMINSTER Young Farmers has given £645 to the Rare Breeds Survival Trust from money raised at charity events throughout the year.

The club had already given money to Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance this year and has funds to give to Fiveways School, Riding for the Disabled and Diabetes UK in the near future.

It is also seeking new members and is encouraging individuals to join up in time for the start of the young farmers’ year in September.

Ilminster has members aged 15 to 26 and meets every Wednesday evening.

The group can be found on Facebook at Ilminster Young Farmers.
