FUW breakfasts raises “A Farm Year’s Income” for charity

 

The equivalent of a year’s farm income (£13,000) has been raised by the Farmers’ Union of Wales, for its charitable causes - Alzheimer’s Society Cymru and The Farming Community Network.

Speaking about the success of the FUW’s farmhouse breakfast week at the end of January, Union President Glyn Roberts said: “Our staff, members and wonderful volunteers have done an incredible job in raising what is the equivalent of a year’s farm income for many farms in Wales for our chosen charities.

“Farming communities are close-knit communities and this shows what can be achieved when we all come together, with a common goal. Through these events, where we all sat around the kitchen table to talk and share our thoughts about #FarmingMatters, we’ve strengthened ongoing and permanent relationships and established new ones.

“The money we have raised in our rural communities will go towards helping others in our communities - we must never forget that our communities are the engine room of people powered change and also that this strength of community has the power to hold governments to account.”
