The FCN is a charity run by volunteers with the aIm of supporting farmers and their families through times of difficulty, whether it be financial difficulties, animal disease, mental health or family disputes. Over 6,000 people per year benefit from the support that the FCN and its network of 400 volunteers can offer.
Taking place from 19th June through to 31st July, the relay will see representatives from 70 companies taking part. Team Alvis took part on the 28th June, and cycled the 21 miles from Lye Cross Farm to Redstock in the late afternoon sunshine. Representing different areas of the business, Will, Rich, Neil and Dan accepted the baton just after 4:30pm and were underway after a short wait to get on the road. After an entertaining ride and passing the baton on to the next group, the team enjoyed a well-deserved drink.
For those wishing to show their support to Team Alvis and the rest of the GAFT cyclists, please donate via justgiving using this link so that the FCN are able to continue their hard work and support.
