Young NPA members are nearing the 1,000-mile mark as they aim to raise money for a very important charity.

For the YNPA Challenge 22, members will collectively travel at least 1000 miles by foot, bike or hoof, with the aim of raising £1,000 for Young Minds, the UK’s leading charity fighting for children and young people's mental health. The challenge ends on September 23.

YNPA 2022 LongthorpSo far, 900 miles have been covered, including Anna and son, Richard (right), who were not only putting in the miles on their bikes but promoting the Back British Farming message while doing so. 

All this efforts deserves some good support - a Just Giving page has been for you to share amongst family and friends - we suggest an entry donation of £5 to get involved, but this is voluntary.

Taking part

There is still time to take part!

There will also be a prize for the best fancy dress, so if you fancy donning a silly outfit then make sure you send us a picture.

To sign up please email Andrea (). 

Sponsors wanted!

We are on the look out for sponsors, for example, to back a 'Super Saturday', something that successfully boosted the running total last year. 

Again, contact Andrea if you are interested. 

Last year's YNPA Challenge covered more than 1,500 miles, raising around £3,000 for the Farming Community Network (FCN).
