Garvagh YFC recently hosted the North Derry/Londonderry UFU BBQ with NFU Mutual, Coleraine

The night was held in Heathfield Farm in Garvagh and was full of fun with bouncy castles, raffles, auctions, family entertainment and ending in dancing with the fabulous DJ. Catching up with old friends, making new ones and lots of laughing was the main itinerary for the night, this was achieved in excess.

As this was Garvagh YFC’s nearest experience to a YFC BBQ and has put the club good stead for the upcoming years, with exciting things ahead for the club, who are celebrating 80 years in 2018. The event which was held in conjunction with Ulster Farmer’s Union, managed to raise a stifling £1067.20. This money will go towards Garvagh YFC and also to their chosen charity for this year, Brainwaves NI, as part of their #GarvaghGivesBack campaign.

Thanks must go to the UFU offices in Coleraine for selling tickets and to Barney Torrens for being the host. As always, the club would like to thank the guests and their supporters who made sure it was a night to remember!

The crowd mingling, reminiscing old memories and debating about the future!
