The proceeds from a popular annual harvest supper at the Carmarthen Livestock Centre Café will be used to help struggling farmers.
The Carmarthen committee of the Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institution (R.A.B.I) is hosting the harvest supper on Friday September 23.
During the first six months of this year, R.A.B.I gave out nearly £23,000 in Carmarthenshire, a 19% increase on the first half of the previous year. Much of R.A.B.I’s funding comes from public donations, events arranged by county committees and support from businesses and community groups.
R.A.B.I regional manager for Wales, Linda Jones, said: “We’re grateful to Dafydd Llywelyn, the Dyfed Powys Police Crime Commissioner, for agreeing to be our guest speaker on the evening and look forward to hearing from Dafydd about his role and his thoughts on rural policing.”
Gwynne Williams, joint chairman of the Carmarthen committee, urged the public to back their efforts and show support for local farmers. He said: “Our harvest supper is always a sociable and enjoyable evening and we are grateful for all the support we receive from R.A.B.I here in Carmarthenshire. Many farming families are struggling through no fault of their own and I’d like to remind all in the farming community, that we’re here to support them in the strictest confidence.”
The event starts at 7.30pm and tickets (£15 each) will need to be pre-ordered as more than 100 people attended last year. Ticket holders are welcome to bring their own glasses and tipple.
