Christmas card winners announced

FUW president’s chosen charity ‐ British Heart Foundation Cymru ‐ is a winner thanks to a Wales wide primary school competition, organised by the union, to design a Christmas card with a farming theme which attracted hundreds of entries. FUW president Glyn Roberts said: “The competition was a roaring success, attracting hundreds of entries from across Wales. The standard was very high and presented the judges with a tough task when it came to choosing the winners. “I would like to thank every single child who entered the competition and to tell them that without their participation the contest would not have been such a success. “I would also like to express my gratitude to the staff at the schools up and down the country that assisted the FUW in the running of the competition. “It gave children in urban and rural areas of Wales an opportunity to connect with the farming industry and express their thoughts in a creative and colourful way, showing why #FarmingMatters. “I believe it is vital that we as farmers maintain a strong link with young people so that they understand the way that food is produced in this country.” The competition was split into two categories ‐ English and Welsh designs. The Welsh category was won by Savanna George, age 10, of Henry Richard School, Primary Campus, Tregaron. Her winning design depicted a colourful line‐up of farm animals, all dressed with Christmas hats, featuring the slogan ‘Amaeth Am Byth’. The winner of the English category was Caleb Vater, age 9, of St Nicholas House, Christ College, Brecon. His winning design shows a farmer driving a tractor across a field with milk and potatoes, as well as a Christmas tree, on the trailer. The Christmas tree is festively decorated with vegetables. Both win a £30 gift voucher for themselves, a packet of the cards depicting their design and a £50 cheque for their school. The cards are also available to buy from FUW county offices throughout Wales or by mail order from the union’s head office in Aberystwyth at £5 for a pack of 10.
