Glamorgan Gazette - - Your Views -

A SUC­CESS­FUL char­ity quiz night, or­gan­ised by the Farm­ers’ Union of Wales Glam­or­gan branch, raised more than £450 for the Alzheimer’s So­ci­ety Cymru and the Farm­ing Com­mu­nity Net­work (FCN).

The event was held ear­lier this month at Heol Y Cyw Rugby Club, where lo­cal farm­ers and friends of the FUW tested their gen­eral knowl­edge.

FUW Glam­or­gan CEO Rachel Saun­ders said: “We had a great night, and I would like to thank all of you for join­ing us and mak­ing it such a suc­cess.

“A spe­cial thank you of course must go to our quiz mas­ter Lor­raine How­ells who kept an eye out for any cheat­ing or foul play and Chris­tine An­stee who pre­pared both the quiz ques­tions and the buf­fet food.

“We had the best turn out we’ve ever had and so far have raised £453 but do­na­tions are still com­ing into the of­fice. A big thank you also to all the peo­ple that do­nated money or raf­fle prizes.”

FCN’s David Wil­liams, who gave a short pre­sen­ta­tion on the work of the char­ity, said: “On be­half of ev­ery­one at FCN, we of­fer our sin­cer­est thanks to ev­ery­one at FUW Glam­or­gan for their sup­port.

“Fundrais­ing ef­forts like this prove just how ded­i­cated the FUW is in sup­port­ing Welsh farm­ers. This money will go a long way to help­ing our Welsh vol­un­teers reach out and sup­port farm­ers and the ru­ral com­mu­nity in Wales, where there seems to be a grow­ing need for help.”
