Young farmers from across south Cumbria competed against one another in a soapbox race for charity.

The event took place at High Haume Farm in Dalton on Sunday.

Seven districts were represented by individuals racing on behalf of their respective Young Farmers Club, raising over £1,000.The Mail: The creations were a marvel to beholdThe creations were a marvel to behold (Image: Jenny Wood)

A Cumbria YFC spokesperson said: "With over 20 races, it kept everyone busy all day and thanks must go to the judges, as well as to all the sponsors who donated so generously to raise funds for the Southern District of Cumbria YFC."

Cumbria YFC chief officer Joanne Mills added that the need to raise money was made crucial after the pandemic.

"The members are now working hard to replace these lost funds and ensure that they are able to continue to run for future generations of young farmers," she said.

In the junior competition, Crook finished first, with Grayrigg winning the senior division.
