FUW hosts ‘wooden horse’ race night for children’s hospices


The Farmers’ Union of Wales Glamorgan and Gwent branches are organising a wooden horse race night for union president Emyr Jones' charity fund for children’s hospices Ty Hafan and Ty Gobaith on Saturday August 30, starting at 7pm.

The event, at FUW member Lorraine Howells' Cwm Carno Farm, near Rhymney, will feature races where six wooden horses are auctioned off before the start of each race with the winners proceeding to a grand final.

“This is the second time we are hosting this event and following its past success in 2012, when we raised over £4,000 for cancer charities, we hope to raise some vital funds for these two great charities,” said FUW Glamorganshire county executive officer Rachel Saunders.

“All the races will be sponsored by local businesses and tickets include a cold meat supper meal.

“We hope to build on the generosity of local members and businesses by raising even more for charity this year and we hope the word has spread about how much everyone who attended in 2012 enjoyed themselves and even more people will come this year.

“Tickets are on sale now for £10 and will be available on the FUW stand at the Vale of Glamorgan and Bedwellty Shows or from the union's county offices in Cowbridge and Abergavenny.

“If any local business wishes to sponsor a race, there is still some availability left and more information can be obtained from the county office,” added Mrs Saunders.
