NFU Cymru has presented rural mental health charity, The DPJ Foundation, with a donation of £1,000 raised from sales of the popular She Who Dares Farms merchandise.
Clare Johns, Pembrokeshire garment designer, has also raised £1,000 for the charity from the sales of her She Who Dares Farms-branded headbands made using 100% Welsh wool.
The two donations, that were presented during Mental Health Awareness Week, brings the total donation from sales of merchandise to £6,000, and will provide much needed funds for the charity following a very challenging year for farmers across Wales.
NFU Cymru County Adviser for Brecon, Radnor and Monmouthshire, Stella Owen, who along with a dedicated team at NFU Cymru founded the She Who Dares Farms movement, said: “I am delighted to be presenting another cheque to this worthwhile charity.
“Farming, in its very nature, can be an isolated profession and with Covid-19 putting a halt to those few face-to-face events, such as livestock marts, shows and farming meetings, many farmers have found this to be a very difficult time. The DPJ Foundation have been there - and will continue to be there - for our rural community and therefore I thank those who have brought our merchandise and made a difference.”
