FUW CANCER FUND BREAKS £50,000 LANDMARK

FUW CANCER FUND BREAKS £50,000 LANDMARK

The total amount raised by the Farmers' Union of Wales's charity fund for Cancer Research Wales (CRW) has broken through the £50,000 mark following a contribution of nearly £3,000 by the union's Caernarfonshire branch.

A £2,932 cheque - part of the final sum raised by the union's Caernarfonshire branch at a series of farmhouse breakfast events earlier this year - has just been presented to FUW national president Emyr Jones by county chairman Dafydd Gwyndaf.

Mr Jones said: "Last month I was delighted to hand over a £50,000 cheque to CRW patron and BBC TV news presenter Huw Edwards on the set of his BBC Wales Sunday night programme 'The Wales Report' so I was very pleased to accept this further handsome donation from Caernarfonshire.

"To have raised so much towards this very worthy cause is certainly beyond my wildest expectations. The money will help CRW continue its ground-breaking research into cancer treatments at facilities such as the Velindre Centre in Cardiff where its research laboratory was opened by Mr Edwards in 2000 and has since become a centre of excellence for the non-surgical treatment of cancer."
