THE CARMARTHENSHIRE branch of the Farmers’ Union of Wales enjoyed a night of Whist on Thursday, October 27, and raised an impressive sum of money in doing so.
Raising £400 for the British Heart Foundation Cymru, the members of the Farmers’ Union of Wales Carmarthenshire branch played Whist at Cothi Bridge Memorial Hall.
BHF are the nation’s heart charity and the largest independent funder of cardiovascular research. Coronary heart disease is the UK’s single biggest killer and their pioneering research has helped to transform the lives of people living with heart and circulatory conditions and their work has been central to the discoveries of vital treatments that are helping to change the face of the UK’s fight against heart disease.
David Waters, FUW Carmarthen County Executive Officer, said: “A good night was had by all and I would like to thank everyone that made the effort to come and support us.
“I would also like to thank Cllr Mansel Charles for being the MC on the night and all those who donated prizes for the raffle.
“The evening was for such a good cause and I hope that we also raised awareness of how much of a problem heart disease is across Wales and the whole of the UK.”
