The Louise Hartley Memorial Fund

Do you want to further your career by travelling abroad, or even embarking on a research project in the UK? Whatever your interest, it could become a reality as Farmers Guardian joins forces with The Louise Hartley Memorial Fund.

A dairy farmer’s daughter, Louise worked for Farmers Guardian since 2013 and joined the publication after completing an agriculture degree at Newcastle University.

 

From Bashall Eaves, Clitheroe, Lancashire, she passed away on July 1 this year (2016) after a short but incredibly brave battle with a rare form of ovarian cancer.

 

A leading member of Clitheroe Young Farmers, she was regularly involved with Lancashire Holstein Young Breeders and showcased a talent for stockjudging and showing cattle, inspired by her family – parents John and Sarah, brother Ben and sister Bridget.

 

Organisations and individuals from within the farming community, along with external groups and individuals who knew her, began raising money to help fund pioneering treatment she received at The Christie Hospital in Manchester.

 

The donations continued and the Louise Hartley Memorial Fund was launched after she died.

 

Legacy

 

The Hartley family now want to help a young person with an interest in livestock farming, a sector Louise felt very passionate about, develop their career.

 

Louise's brother Ben, who runs the farm in partnership with his dad, says: “We are looking for somebody who wants to further their knowledge about livestock farming. We want them to enjoy the experience and the money used could be used to travel, gain knowledge, facilitate work experience or conduct their own research over here in the UK.

 

“Louise liked going to shows and learning about people and places. We just want to help somebody look into the future of farming and help them in their career. Louise would really want as many people as possible to apply.”

 

Candidates must be aged between 18 and 30 and have a keen interest in livestock farming. An application must be completed before shortlisting takes place in February next year.

 

Successful applicants will be invited to an interview, where they can discuss their idea further with our judging panel, made up of Farmers Guardian editor Ben Briggs, owner of Norbrook Genetics and dairy farmer Philip Halhead and two members of the Hartley family.

 

The closing date for applications is Friday, February 9, 2017. To apply, click below.

 

And if you want to donate to the fund, email FG editor Ben Briggs at ben.briggs@farmersguardian.com or ring 07920 500025.
