Hard work pays off in the Filleigh Farmyard Olympics

Our latest effort to support North Devon Hospice took on a more competitive, sporting flavour, as Bray Leino people dressed up in wellies, tweed  and assorted farm animal garb for the first official Filleigh Farmyard Olympics.

The various events tested the skill, fitness and mental toughness of competitors, arranged in teams of four and battling to win the much coveted golden wellies. Games included, Dress the Farmer, Human Sheepdog, Milkmaids and a Farmyard Relay, which incorporated a cream tea eating race, wellie wanging, a plank walk, dizzy cone running and a wheelbarrow race.

Hard work, dedication and commitment to a fierce training regime saw the 'Goats' team of Alice Dilliway, Hannah Smith, Tabby Fox and Ruth  Chamings lift the golden boots at the end of the day. 'Horses', claimed silver with the 'Farmers' taking bronze.

A significant donation went to the North Devon Hospice; our relationship with the Hospice sees us pledge around £30,000 worth of creative services to the charity each year.

In August, we created a one-off TV spot to help promote its involvement in the Devon County Fayre and National Sheepdog Trials - scroll the images above to see it.

“As a local charity, utterly reliant on the generosity of the local community of North Devon, we’ve been very fortunate to have Bray Leino as one of our key supporters,” said North Devon Hospice CEO Stephen Roberts.  

“North Devon Hospice provides free care and support to nearly 2000 patients and their families across North Devon faced with the impact of a life-limiting illness,” he added. “We believe in being there for all the family and Bray Leino have certainly been there for us.”
