Team story

[p]In March 2018 I was diagnosed with terminal cancer. Our world came crashing down but there was worse to come. In November I was subsequently diagnosed with severe depression. Initially I ignored it, I didn't believe in depression and thought folks just needed a kick up the backside which then included myself. By December thanks to my amazing Wife, Zanna, who literally dragged me to the doctor, I not only accepted that I needed help but also began to see how wide spread the problem is in society. A close friend who realised what we were going through rang YANA, who subsequently called my Wife and then myself. We are now confidentially seeing individual YANA councillors which is really helping. [/p][p]Now seeing how widespread the problem is in Agriculture and just how many put a mask on everyday, I want to help raise awareness not only of Mental Health but also the great work that YANA does and in the process raise money to help them undertake their amazing work.[/p][p]Wonderful friends of ours came up with the suggestion of organising a charity cricket day. It’s such a wonderful way to get the support of the farming community whilst doing something that we enjoy. Thank you so much Chris and Lucy McKay and Billy and Sara Fordham for your amazing support and getting behind this amazing cause and doing something to make a real difference.[/p][p][b]The Objectives of The Naked Farmer Cricket Day:[/b][/p][p]1 - Raise the awareness of Mental Health in Agriculture.[/p][p]2 - Raise awareness of YANA.[/p][p]3 - Raise some serious funds for YANA.[/p][p]4 - Have some fun in the process.[/p][p][b]Sponsors will have the opportunity to advertise at Brisley Cricket Club on the day , 22nd June 2019, via banner or other chosen medium.[/b][/p][p][b]Successes to date:[/b][/p][p]YANA have seen an increase in calls since the Eastern Daily Press & Poultry Business articles.[/p][p]TW Page Limited - a supplier to the farm - off the back of the EDP article have committed to the YANA details being added to their emails and on their van signage.[/p][p][b]See also:[/b][/p][p]https://www.yanahelp.org/[/p][p]https://www.edp24.co.uk/business/farming/norfolk-farmer-battles-cancer-and-depression-1-5951964[/p][p]http://www.poultrynews.co.uk/news/the-naked-truth.html[/p][p]https://mobile.twitter.com/UphouseFarm[/p][p]https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/video_and_audio/headlines/47888402/farmers-struggling-with-mental-health[/p]
