* Terms and conditions
I am pleased to confirm that I wish to participate in the Pennies from Heaven scheme and hereby authorise my employer above as my agent to collect each pay period from my salary such odd penny balances (maximum 99p per pay period) and to distribute such amounts to the charity shown above. This authorisation is effective from the date I submit this form and shall remain in force until cancelled in writing. If I am a UK Taxpayer I give my consent for Gift Aid to be reclaimed on my donations (this boosts your donation by 25% and costs you nothing) and agree for my employer to provide Pennies from Heaven and the charities with my name and address for this purpose only. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax in the current tax year than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations it is my responsibility to pay any difference. It is noted that 100% of my donations will go directly to the nominated charity/charities.

Where the money goes...
The Farm Safety Foundation, or Yellow Wellies as we are also known, aims to preserve and protect the physical and mental wellbeing of the next generation of farmers, equipping them with smart strategies and specific skills to live well and farm well. The independent charity was set up by NFU Mutual in 2014 amidst rising concerns over the high level of fatal and life-changing injuries on farms.
A key part of the charity’s work is our two national campaigns, Farm Safety Week and Mind Your Head. These campaigns focus on physical and mental health in agriculture respectively. The charity runs an education programme which is delivered to agricultural colleges and universities across the UK, and through the National Federation of Young Farmers Club network. To date (October 2023), our training has been delivered to over 22,000 young farmers.
The charity also works in partnership with key sector stakeholders, settings and groups to reduce risk-taking and poor safety behaviours and provide support. We also conduct sector-leading research into attitudes and behaviours to understand the risk factors around farm safety and poor mental health.
The Farm Safety Foundation may be a small charity, but we have big ambitions and work hard to ensure the next generation of farmers are resilient and have the knowledge they need to live well and farm well.
