Young farm­ers boost life­savers

Llanelli Star - - Letters -

DAFENBASED Wales Air Am­bu­lance has been boosted by a young farm­ers club.

Mem­bers and friends of Ystrad­fellte Young Farm­ers Club were de­lighted to present a cheque for £11,554.07 to Wales Air Am­bu­lance last week.

The funds were raised at a trac­tor run, auc­tion and raf­fle held in June.

The fundrais­ing ef­forts started with 69 trac­tors tak­ing part in a 30-mile, cir­cu­lar route from Ystrad­fellte to Heol Senni, Peny­cae, Coel­bren and Pontneddfe­chan, pass­ing at­trac­tions such as Maen Llia, the Na­tional Show Caves, and Hen­rhyd Falls.

Wales Air Am­bu­lance Com­mu­nity co­or­di­na­tor An­nie Lawrie said: “We would like to thank the Ystrad­fellte Young Farm­ers Club for their in­cred­i­bly gen­er­ous do­na­tion.”

An air am­bu­lance spokesman said: “The in­cred­i­ble amount raised will help us to con­tinue out life­sav­ing work.”

Mem­bers and friends of Ystrad­fellte Young Farm­ers had over the cheque.
