Raising funds for farming and rural communities

TurfPro owners Duncan Murray-Clarke and Emma Craigie are running the Brighton Half Marathon next month for the the Addington Fund.

Emma said, "We are running to help raise awareness and money for the Addington Fund, of which I'm a trustee, who are an incredible charity supporting farming and rural communities. Every penny will help. Thank you in advance for your contribution to this tremendous cause."

Duncan added, "I am open to sponsorship and happy to sell my body if anyone wants to make a chunky donation! I’ll wear a branded baseball cap - the paparazzi will no doubt be out in force and the inevitable publicity that will follow could be substantial…"

Addington Fund supports primarily in the following ways:

  • Disaster Relief if someone's farm is severely impacted by adverse weather and certain animal disease outbreaks.
  • Retirement Homes for retiring farmers.
  • Affordable Houses to keep agriculturalists and rural workers in their chosen location.
  • Farmworker Grants for active or retired farmworkers on low incomes.
  • Young Entrants Scheme to help and encourage first-generation talent into the farming industry.
