The Farmers' Union of Wales Ceredigion branch today (Wednesday July 30) presented the union's Apêl FUW Somerset cheque of £1,755 to the Addington Fund at Cardigan Show as fundraising efforts come to a close.

"The Addington Fund charity was instrumental in providing emergency assistance for farmers in Somerset and we would like to thank everyone for their kind donations of fodder or cash," said FUW Ceredigion county chairman Aled Rees.

The FUW Ceredigion branch also hosted a strawberries and cream reception on their stand at Cardigan Show to thank supporters of Apêl FUW Somerset for all their help.


Through their fundraising efforts to help flood-affected Somerset farmers, Ceredigion farmers also secured over 20 articulated lorry loads of food for livestock over recent months.

Attending the cheque presentation were Ceredigion AM Elin Jones, economy, science and transport minister Edwina Hart and agriculture and fisheries deputy minister Rebecca Evans.


"I am very pleased that so many were able to join us for the occasion to thank all those business and hauliers for the heartfelt generosity over recent months," added Mr Rees.

Elin Jones said: "I was delighted to attend the FUW event at Cardigan Show to thank the local farmers who gave so generously to help out those in Somerset who were suffering after the severe floods.

"The work Aled Rees, and the other organisers, was extremely valuable in making sure that animals didn't suffer for lack of food during the spring.

"The great generosity of farmers and hauliers in Ceredigion really made a difference in helping Somerset farmers to get back on their feet."
