Eventful week raises £6,500 for heart charity

THE 13 farmhouse breakfast events held by the FUW’s Meirionnydd, Caernarfon, Denbigh and Flintshire and Ceredigion branches raised £6,500 for the union’s charity British Heart Foundation Cymru. Over 650 friends and members of the FUW indulged in locally sourced breakfast produce ranging from bacon, eggs, sausages, cheese and other dairy products to promote the benefits of eating a healthy and balanced breakfast every day. As they came together around the breakfast table, many used the opportunity to share their thoughts and worries about the state of the industry. FUW president Glyn Roberts, who hosted a breakfast at his farm Dylasau Uchaf, Padog, Betws y Coed, said: “The breakfast functions offer fantastic opportunities for us on a variety of levels. “We get to enjoy and promote the great food we produce here in Wales and through that advocate a healthy balanced diet and lifestyle. “We get to raise money for our charity and we also all get to sit around the same table to share what’s on our mind. “I would like to thank all those who supported the breakfast functions again this year by attending, sponsoring or hosting. It is important that we come together round a table as a union – a family and industry to safeguard what keeps the hills and valleys of Wales alive.”
