Farmer auctions off gimmer lamb for cancer charity

Alex Denby, who farms in Bentham, North Yorkshire, sold his lamb at Bentham mart’s Great Annual Sale of Gimmer Lambs on Saturday, September 12, to boost fundraising efforts for testicular cancer charity Oddballs after finding out his friend, farmer’s son Adam Caton, was recently diagnosed.

The lamb was bought by auction staff for £600, then resold for an additional £680 plus £170 in gift aid, totalling £1,450.

Mr Denby is also set to take part in a three-day 240-mile group charity bike ride from Kirkby Lonsdale to Milton Keynes on October 23-25.

In a Facebook post, Mr Denby said: “It was a shock to hear the news about a good friend of mine as nobody expects such a physically active and healthy lad to get cancer, and it just goes to show how horrid and unforgiving cancer is.”

“After two attempts going out on a bike, it proves I am fair way off becoming the next Bradley Wiggins and looks like I am going to hold everybody up on the ride.

“I am still doing the bike ride but to try and make amends, I am donating this mule gimmer lamb for charity.”

After the sale, Mr Denby thanked everyone for their efforts and donations.

A shearling donated by Henry Tustain and sold four times at Rugby Farmers Market in August also raised £1,362 for Oddballs.
