Powys Young Farmers Raise Over £1,000 For WAA
Young farmers from Powys have raised over £1,000 for a Welsh helicopter charity, helping to fund their lifesaving missions across Wales.
The Radnor Valley Young Farmers Club went carol singing in the Christmas period to raise funds for three charities, including Wales Air Ambulance.
The group of 10-26 year olds sang festive songs across Radnor to collect donations for three charities.
Over the course of three nights, the Young Farmers Club raised £1,447, which will be donated to Wales Air Ambulance, Riding for the Disable and Cancer Research UK.
During the last 15 years, the Radnor Valley Young Farmers Club has raised around £25,000 for charities, including Wales Air Ambulance.
Harriet Pugh, Vice Chairman of Radnor Valley Young Farmers Club, said: “We are more than happy to donate, as we live in a rural area, Wales Air Ambulance is an important charity to us.
“We raise money for Wales Air Ambulance every year, as far back as I can remember!”
The Radnor Valley Young Farmers Club presented their donation to Wales Air Ambulance Community Coordinator, Helen Pruett.
Helen said: “We would like to say a big thank you to the Radnor Valley Young Farmers Club for their kind support.
“Each of WAA’s lifesaving missions cost roughly £1,500, and their donation will help us to fund our missions across Wales.”
