It’s sunny side up for Carmarthen farmers and charities

A warm welcome and mouth-watering smells awaited those joining the Carmarthen branch of the Farmers’ Union of Wales at breakfast functions, which were organised as part of the FUW’s Farmhouse breakfast week campaign (January 21 – January 27).

The events were held on Thursday, 24 January at Llanddeusant village hall and Friday, 25 January at Llanarthney village hall.

“It was about showcasing the most important meal of the day in a bid to raise awareness of the health and nutritional benefits of breakfast and the huge variety of top quality farm produce available in Wales.

“We loved having everyone there and I thank all those who supported us this year either by cooking, sponsoring produce or helping us raise money for our worthy charities,” said FUW Carmarthen CEO David Waters.

The breakfasts raised a fantastic amount of money for the FUW President’s charity appeal -  a total of £820 - with all the proceeds being split between Alzheimer’s Society Cymru and Farming Community Network.

“It was great to have members and friends of the Union coming together,  being a part of what we do, and sharing their thoughts and worries about the state of the industry, telling us their stories and helping us to understand how we can help each other.

“What better way to do that than round a table where we share great food and have a cup of tea. I’m already looking forward to next year’s breakfast events,” added David Waters.

The Carmarthenshire branch would like to thank, Castell Foods Ltd, DC and SM Davies, Cwmcowddu Farm, for donating the food for Llanddeusant Hall and the cooking at Llanddeusant Hall by Meinir Davies, Catrin Price, Bethan Thomas and Joyce Owens.

We would also like to thank Rhosyn Farm Products for cooking and supplying the food at Llanarthney Village hall.
