A £500 top-up to the Farmers’ Union of Wales Somerset floods appeal fund has been handed over by Gamallt Concrete Ltd, Cardigan. Llew Rees, the owner of Gamallt Concrete, kindly agreed to donate a percentage from every order placed throughout March to the FUW’s appeal to help flood affected farmers in Somerset. Mr Rees, a farmer in Brynberian, was one of the Ceredigion farmers to donate silage bales for the first lorry load sent to farmers in Somerset.
He said: “Gamallt Concrete is a rural business at the heart of the countryside and I could see how the devastation in Somerset would have a long term effect on farmers and rural businesses. “I wanted to help as much as I could, because I know the rural community has and always will support each other.” The FUW fund has raised a total of £2,255 for the Addington Fund which was instrumental in providing emergency assistance for farmers in Somerset.
