FCN are delighted to announce their new partnership with NSF International, a global certification body which audit a variety of farm assurance schemes within the UK.
FCN and NSF International want to support the whole farming community and the vital role farming plays, because they both understand that farming is not just a business, it’s a way of life. To start this support, NSF will be donating £10 every time of their existing members switch their payment method to direct debit.
In addition to this partnership, NSF International are launching a photo competition for their 2019 calendar, with the aim to capture the funny side of farming. Not only will it raise a smile, but it will also raise money for a community that deserve the support.
Charles Smith, chief executive of FCN, said: “At the moment, life is extremely difficult for many people within the farming community. The primary role of FCN’s 400+ volunteers is to ‘walk with’ those people and help them find a positive outcome to their situation. Through this competition, our hope is that these photos will go some way to putting the smile back on the faces of those who don’t have much to smile about. We are delighted that NSF are supporting us in this way.”
NSF International’s Agriculture Director Anita Roberts said, “We admire the work that FCN do with farmers and their families; that’s why we have chosen to start our support by donating £10 to them every time one of our existing members switch their membership payment method to direct debit. Our work supports thousands of UK farmers and we want to extend that support with FCN and the wonderful work they do for farmers.”
The competition opens today. Simply submit all photos along with an accompanying tagline (meme) to: firstname.lastname@example.org.Final submissions will be accepted up until 13th July 2018 and all calendars will be on sale from August 2018. All calendar proceeds will be donated to FCN.
