Have your say

Members of Glarryford Young Farmers Club have completed their epic 70 miles ‘bath push’ to mark the club’s 70th anniversary.

The marathon effort started bright and early on Saturday, May 24 at the young farmers hall with a bunch of energetic and eager young farmers heading towards Cullybackey.

Taking turns, the bath was pushed from village to village, covering just under 30 miles, including Galgorm, Ahoghill, Portglenone, Rasharkin and finally stopping in Ballymoney for the evening.

Day two of the push saw the team leave Ballymoney en route for the Port.

Crowds were out in full force and with plenty of encouragement and cheering from the onlookers, the team powered their way into Portrush where they stopped for the evening.

On the last day there were plenty of sore and tired feet so lots of encouragement was required for the push up the hills out of Portrush on the first stage of a 23 mile homeward bound trip.

On arrival at Glarryford Young Farmers hall the team were greeted by friends and family who had provided a surprise feast to replenish their depleated energy stored.

The club wishes to thank everyone who was involved in any way, including sponsors, organisers and supporters. All money raised will go towards the club’s two chosen charities this year – Clic Sargent and Meningitis Now.
