Big farm breakfasts raise money for two amazing charities #Charity

When it comes to rallying together in aid of a good cause, you need look no further than the farming community.

 

Lindsey Hitchen will open her farm doors to the public in order to serve up traditional cooked breakfasts, giving her the chance to not only raise money, but get involved with her community.

 

Old Holme Farm, which also runs as St. Georges Court, a bed and breakfast in Yorkshire as part of Farmstay UK, can hold up to fifty in one sitting, and it will be Lindsey herself serving up the feast.

 

"It is nice to be able to give something back", she says.

 

The Addington Fund who help to re-home farming families, and Yorkshire Air Ambulance are the chosen chairites, picked due to their natural contribution to the rural network.

 

"I just think the Air Ambulance do such a fantastic job and coming from a farming background myself, I wanted to choose an industry based one and the Addington Fund does great work."

Over the three days, Lindsey is hoping to tempt over 200 visitors to her 20-acre beef and sheep farm, from January 23 to January 25.

 

Attracting people from all walks of life and ages, the tickets are priced at £15 each and can be purchased by emailing Lindsey at info@stgeorgescourt.co.uk

 

The proper farmhouse fry up will consist of all the usual elements, and is sponsored by Eura Audit of Ripon, with support from Gold Top Milk, Topcliffe mushroom grower Trevor Fothergill, Harrogate Spa Water, Miller Food Service in York, Bleiker’s Smokehouse, Leeming Bar, and Ian Taylor Eggs, of Burton Leonard.

 

Last time Lindsey held the event over £3,000 was raised.
