The FUW’s annual Farmhouse Breakfast week has raised more than just awareness of the great food farmers produce all year round.
During the week (21 - 27 January) over 27 breakfast functions were held across Wales, which raised nearly £15,000 for the FUW President’s charity appeal.
Glyn Roberts, FUW President, said: “Our staff, members and wonderful volunteers have done an incredible job once again this year. The money raised will go to our charitable causes - Alzheimer’s Society Cymru and The Farming Community Network - and brings the current fund up to almost £35,000!
“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 that amazing things can be achieved and will be achieved.”
