The Pembrokeshire branch of the Farmers’ Union of Wales held a successful bingo evening in aid of the DPJ Foundation, raising over £700 on the night.
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: “A big thank you to everyone who came along to support our recent charity bingo, you helped us raise the fantastic sum of £746.01 for the President’s charity, The DPJ Foundation. A big thank you is also extended to Cuckoo Mill Farm for their continued support.”
