FARMYARD fun will be the order of the day on Saturday, when the National Forest Adventure Farm hosts its annual Agri-lympics.

The charity event is a chance for teams from in and around the area to get silly and dirty, and raise money for a good cause in the process.

From the tractor pull and the hay bale heft to the eating competition and the hilarious run with your wife piggy back race, there will be plenty to keep both participants and spectators amused throughout the day.

Those taking part will be competing to win the prestigious golden welly trophy.

A spokesman for the farm, near Tatenhill, said: “Participants should bring along a healthy dose of good humour, a willingness to get dirty and look silly, and a high degree of sportsmanship.

“This is a day for charity and we want everyone involved to have a good time.”

Teams, who are being encouraged to dress up for the event, should consist of eight people – four men and four women, and all competitors should be 15 or over.

Charities benefitting from this year’s event will be the Donna Louise Children’s Hospice Trust and the Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institution, which supports farm workers and their dependents in times of crisis.

Each team must raise £120 to enter, and other funds will come from a raffle, and a £1 donation for every person who pays for a ticket on the day of the competition, which runs from noon until 5pm.
