Following the success of the NFU Cymru She Who Dares Farms conference, a cheque for £2,700 has been handed over to The DPJ Foundation at the Winter Fair.
Stella Owen, NFU Cymru County Adviser, said: “The She Who Dares Farms merchandise has absolutely flown off the shelves with 100% of profits raised going to The DPJ Foundation. We have sold over 500 items, raising to date £2,700 for The DPJ Foundation.
“It has been simply phenomenal with merchandise reaching Scotland, Ireland, even Australia and New Zealand. All in all I think the event has shown the energy and commitment of farming women and that has shone through with some excellent emails being sent to lobby AMs on important issues such as water quality regulations and the Sustainable Farming and our Land consultation response. We want to represent every member of farming businesses, so wear your merchandise with pride, come along to county meetings or events in your area and get involved. We really need to stand together now and your support has been tremendous. We are delighted to see such a significant sum raised for The DPJ Foundation.”
Emma Picton-Jones, Founder of The DPJ Foundation said: “We are extremely grateful to Stella and the She Who Dares Farms team for choosing to donate the profits to our charity. The merchandise has flown out and that’s testament to the strength of the ladies in the agriculture community.
"We are looking forward to working with the team to see how this money can be spent to specifically ensure women in our community have support with their mental health at such a crucial time for the sector.”
