Nominate a family member, neighbour or yourself for €10,000
Do you know someone that is worthy of the title of farm hero? AXA is celebrating national farm heroes at the 2019 National Ploughing Championships and the winner will receive €10,000.
“A farm hero is someone who goes out of their way to help their neighbour and their community,” said Christy Doherty, head of farm at AXA Insurance Ireland.
The competition is open to individuals from farming families across Ireland. You can nominate a family member, neighbour or yourself online.
“The farm hero might be a first aid volunteer, train the local sports team, fundraise for local causes, bring meals to older neighbours or be a support in times of crisis."
"We want to hear about the inspiring farmers and farm families across the country and recognise them for their time and effort,” added the AXA representative.
Three finalists will be selected from the nominations by a panel of judges and the winner will be revealed at the National Ploughing Championships, where its guest of honour on the stand will be Gordan Elliot’s two-time Grand National winner Tiger Roll.
“We look forward to hearing about all the great work going on nationwide and celebrating the everyday hero,” Doherty concluded.
The closing date for nominations is August 18th, 2019 - n
