Young Farmers 'BARK UP' donation

Sue van den Heuvel - Thursday, June 21, 2018

Methven Young Farmers hosted the 'Bark up at the Blue' event, on Saturday 19th May.

45 entries were vying for 'Best Farm Dog, Best Dressed, Best U13'.  Bryce Yorke, a Shepherd from Banks Peninsula took out the biggest prize for 'Best Farm Dog'.

Kelsie Laing said, "the Bark Up committee made up of Lucy Dynes, Brooke Dickey, Ezekiel Turner, Billy Dowle and myself, were completely overwhelmed by the generosity of local businesses, who sponsored us with an amazing range of prizes.  We decided to donate money to Methven Care Trust as we wanted to give back to our community and support the hard work of their team".

This was the first time the 'Bark Up' event had been held in Methven, and based on how successful it was, and the awesome feedback they received, Kelsie said, "we will definitely be looking at running another Bark up in the future".
