More than £4,100 has been raised by Farmers' Union of Wales members, staff and supporters at 13 breakfast functions held in aid of union president Emyr Jones's children's hospice charities Tŷ Hafan and Tŷ Gobaith during this year's Farmhouse Breakfast Week.

Kitchens in Ceredigion, Anglesey, Denbighshire, Flintshire, Caernarfonshire and Meirionnydd were filled with mouth-watering aromas as part of the union's promotion of locally-produced Welsh food.

The various events highlighted the union's enthusiastic support for the Farmhouse Breakfast Week campaign organised since 2000 by the Home Grown Cereals Authority (HGCA).

FUW president Emyr Jones said: "The union is a keen supporter of HGCA's campaign to raise awareness of the benefits of eating a healthy breakfast and demonstrate the rich variety and quality of breakfast foods available in Wales and the rest of the UK.

"I would like to thanks everyone for their very generous support, which has made these breakfast functions such a success.

We have raised a fantastic amount of money for the charities and managed once more to showcase what excellent food we produce here in Wales," added Mr Jones.
