08 Oct SAYFC Highlight Their Creativity With Cancer Research Charity Themed ‘Bale Art’ Designs
Edinburgh Rugby prop, Pietro Ceccarelli took time out of his hectic autumn international period to join Galbraith’s Robert Taylor and SAYFC in the prestigious Bale Art judging!
Appearing across Scotland in the past week – constructed bale models have allowed the country’s rural youth to assist a range of cancer charities, backing their campaigns and highlighting the importance of self-health and wellbeing.
National Chairperson, Kim Livesey, has been keeping an eye out for the spectacular sculptures, stating:
“These artworks not only give club members a fun creative activity to be involved in together as a team whilst promoting cancer awareness, but they have provided a fantastic opportunity to promote young farmers in local communities, showing passers-by the innovation and creativity within our able young farmers”
The top six finalists who showcased their creativeness and swayed the judges are announced as; Peeblesshire JAC, Harray YFC, Loch Lomond YFC, Biggar YFC, Strathmore JAC and Callander YFC.
The finalists bale creations sparkled for the judges after a difficult cut down, with all clubs doing an impressive amount of organising in pulling together their constructions. With club’s featuring elements of the self-checking processes being endorsed by cancer charities, SAYFC are stressing to the industry and wider society that health screenings and check-ups should be scheduled into every individual’s lifestyle – whether they be ‘fashionable’ or not.
Pietro caught up with us following his judging stunt, commenting:
“These creations support a cause which affects us all at some point in life. I’m proud to have judged such a competition, full of ambitious bale designs and I’d like to reach out my thanks to all clubs who entered and provided me with a challenging but very entertaining task alongside Robert”.
