FUW boosts charity funds with balcony view at Royal Welsh Show


Exclusive tickets for a prime viewing location on the Farmers' Union of Wales' pavilion balcony alongside the main ring at Llanelwedd will be sold in a bid to raise funds for children's hospice charities Tŷ Hafan and Tŷ Gobaith on the Wednesday afternoon of the Royal Welsh Show.

FUW president Emyr Jones said: "We are offering 12 people an exclusive chance to enjoy Pimms and strawberries on the balcony on Wednesday July 23 between 2.30pm and 5pm to watch the Senior Welsh Cob Stallions, which is generally the highlight of the main ring events during the show.

"Tickets for this exclusive occasion can be purchased on a first-come first-served basis at the union's pavilion during the show and will cost £20 a ticket. There is also an opportunity to win two additional tickets to the event as part of a raffle prize. All proceeds raised will go towards our charities Tŷ Hafan and Tŷ Gobaith."

Cardiff-based Tŷ Hafan and Oswestry-based Hope House Children's Hospices which includes Tŷ Gobaith at Conwy will share the proceeds of the fund that was formally launched by Mr Jones at the Royal Welsh Show last year.
