Members of Yarcombe Young Farmers have dug deep to raise £2120 for the Devon Air Ambulance Trust.

The money was raised during a number of events including a pantomime re-run and auction where members and their families donated different prizes and their own time.

They also completed a sponsored bike ride where six of the group’s members cycled from Yarcombe to Weston-Super-Mare as well as a raft race and treasure hunt.

The Devon Air Ambulance Trust was the young farmers chosen charity for 2012.
