Caernarfon Herald - - YOUR COMMUNITY -

● Caernar­fon­shire Farm­ers’ Union of Wales mem­ber Lowri Thomas pre­sented Cancer Re­search Wales with a cheque worth £500 at the Na­tional Eisteddfod. The money was raised dur­ing the FUW’s farm­house break­fast week in Jan­uary at Meil­lionydd Bach, Rhoshir­waun. FUW Caernar­fon­shire CEO Gwynedd Watkin said: “The whole fam­ily in­clud­ing Huw Thomas (Lowri’s hus­band) and his brother Dei, made a tremen­dous ef­fort to raise over £2,000 of which £500 was do­nated to Cancer Re­search Wales. The re­main­ing £1,500+ was added to the Pres­i­dent’s cho­sen charity BHF Cymru. I am very grate­ful to them for host­ing the break­fast, which al­lowed us to raise such a fan­tas­tic amount of money. Cancer af­fects so many fam­i­lies through­out Wales, and al­most ev­ery­one you talk to to­day knows some­one who is or has suf­fered from Cancer. The tremen­dous work that is done by Cancer Re­search Wales is ap­pre­ci­ated by all and we are glad that we have been able to con­trib­ute to­wards their work,” said Lowri Thomas. “We’d like to thank ev­ery­one that came to the break­fast and to all those who couldn’t make it but still con­trib­uted ei­ther fi­nan­cially or by spon­sor­ing the food as did many many lo­cal busi­nesses,” she added. Cancer Re­search Wales Fi­nance Man­ager Enid Lewis, who ac­cepted the cheque, said: “Cancer Re­search Wales would like to thank Lowri Thomas and her fam­ily for this kind do­na­tion. These funds will support pi­o­neer­ing projects which aim to pre­vent cancer, im­prove treat­ments and hope­fully bring us that one step closer to a cure. We are proud to guar­an­tee that all money raised is spent on cancer re­search at Welsh hos­pi­tals and uni­ver­si­ties – re­search that is only pos­si­ble be­cause of the fan­tas­tic support that we re­ceive through­out Wales.” Lowri Thomas would like to thank the fol­low­ing for spon­sor­ing the break­fast pro­duce: Llaethdy Llŷn; Car­wyn & Carys Evans, Botwnnog; Llŷn Eggs Pen­caerau; Hir­dre Isaf’s Happy Eggs from Tud­weil­iog; South Caernar­fon Cream­ery; Cig Ceirion, Sarn; Clwc Clwc, Rhoshir­waen; R.H.
