The Pembrokeshire branch of the Farmers’ Union of Wales has organised a bingo evening in aid of the DPJ Foundation on Thursday 14 November, at Haverfordwest Cricket Club. Doors open 7 pm, eyes down at 8 pm.
The DPJ Foundation was set up in July 2016 following the death of Daniel Picton-Jones. The foundation aims to support people in rural communities with poor mental health, especially men in the agricultural sector.
Agriculture carries one of the highest rates of suicide and with mental health being such a big problem across society the foundation aims to break down the stigma that surrounds mental health and provide support services for those in rural communities.
FUW Pembrokeshire County Executive Officer Rebecca Voyle said: “I would like to extend a warm welcome to all to join us for what promises to be a fun evening - you never know ‘Dancing Queen’, ‘Naughty 40’ or ‘Garden Gate’ might just be what you need. We hope that as many as possible will join us on the night to help us raise money to support the fantastic work the DPJ Foundation does.”
