A rotten scheme to turn pooh into charity pounds is coming together in the fields of East Hampshire.

The Petersfield Young Farmers Club have announced plans to hold another charity dung run on Saturday, April 13, following on from the success of last year’s event.

They will be delivering bags of well-rotted farmyard manure to advance buyers in the Petersfield, Butser and Clanfield areas for £5 each or a handful for £20.

Last year’s run was a huge success with more than 500 bags being delivered and over £2,000 raised, with proceeds being split between the Petersfield Young Farmers Club and Hampshire & IOW Air Ambulance.

Funds from this year’s run will also be split between the two causes and the Rural Agricultural Benevolent Institute.

Bags will be delivered between 9am and 5pm on the day with the route taking in the Petersfield area during the morning and South of Butser in the afternoon.

People who would like a bag should email their order request, address and contact details to [email protected] before April 5. Buyers will be contacted after the date to confirm details, with cash payment only accepted on delivery day.

Buyers must include the right amount of cash in an envelope with their name on, so the club knows where the money has come from.

Questions are always welcomed about the club, which celebrates its 90th birthday in 2025 and is rightly proud of its farming heritage and impact on local youngsters.
