St Boniface Vets are taking part in the XLVets Charity Challenge, in aid of Send a Cow & The Farming Community Network.
We aim to walk, swim, cycle and even roller skate 453.95 miles by September! We are already clocking up a few miles. To track our progress, keep checking back on Facebook for weekly updates www.facebook.com/stbonifacevets.
During the Mid Devon Show, we had the pleasure of meeting one of founding farmers and senior programme co-ordinator David Bragg, who hosted a farmer from Ethiopia.
Send a Cow gives vulnerable rural communities in Africa the hope and the means to secure their own futures from the land. Since 1988, they have seen over 1 million lives transformed, thanks to their powerful mix of practical farming, emotional support and a culture of sharing. Every farmer pledges to 'pass on' the gift, and research shows that for every person they help, ten more go on to benefit, leaving poverty behind for good.

FCN (the Farming Community Network) has strong and longstanding links with the farming community and agriculture throughout England and Wales. Volunteers are all farmers, or are associated with farming, and understand the problems facing agriculture today. FCN strives to make itself known to any and all in the farming community who might one day need them or who might like to help and support the charity http://www.fcn.org.uk/.
If you would like to make a donation, we have a collection tin in reception and we will have a collection bucket at future events.
