A PEMBROKESHIRE fundraising breakfast raised more than £800 to fight Alzheimer's disease.

Breakfast is one of the most important meals of the day, and in order to promote the health benefits along with the variety of top quality Welsh produce available, the county branch of the Farmers’ Union of Wales hosted their farmhouse breakfast for a second year at Crundale Hall, Crundale.

FUW Pembrokeshire county executive Officer Rebecca Voyle, who organised the breakfast, said: “I would like to thank all those who joined us for breakfast here in Pembrokeshire and all the staff and members who helped cook up a storm.

"It was great success and we raised a fantastic £801.22 for Alzheimer's Society Cymru and the Farming Community Network in the process.

“It was our second year of hosting this breakfast event as part of farmhouse breakfast week and we shared our thoughts and worries about the state of the industry over a cup of tea and delicious breakfast.

“We also talked about #FarmingMatters with Paul Davies AM, Eluned Morgan AM and Gwyneth Hayward, chairman of Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, and put the spotlight on the importance of our local economy. And there is really no better time to do that than over breakfast.”

The county office also thanked Aldi Haverfordwest; Brooksgrove Farm; Calon Wen; Messrs Curtis, Langdon Farm; Fred Hughes & Son Butchers; Harries Family, Eithinman; Hywel Vaughan, Llwyncelyn; Melony Richards, FUW Insurance Services and Morrisons, Haverfordwest, who sponsored the event.
