The FUW have announced today that their 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. Two were held in Aberconwy. Guto was unable to attend the event at Cefn Cae, Rowen on Tuesday 22nd as he was in London, so Guto was very pleased to be free to attend Friday’s event at Dylasau Uchaf where we are told he had a magnificent breakfast.
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!
Guto said, “This is a wonderful achievement and everyone involved should be very proud of what they have achieved. It was a great opportunity to talk in a warm environment.”
Glyn Roberts went on to say :- “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.”
