The Farming Community Network has thanked the industry for a donation of £1,800 raised during the National Egg & Poultry Awards 2021, held in London in October.
Attendees donated the money during the evening and the charity said it was very grateful for the support of the poultry industry.
“We owe our farmers a great debt, and it is during this time that we will need to do everything we can to support those already working in farming and living in rural areas, whilst also creating a resilient and sustainable industry for the next generation of farmers,” said finance and admin officer Angela Stock.
“We are actively encouraging farmers to embrace the changes that lie ahead and to seek help and support if they need it. We are also proactively helping farmers and their families to build personal and business resilience and to plan ahead for the future. Your generous donation will help us to continue supporting those in need and assist us in creating a resilient farming future.”
