How you can help our farmers

WAYS TO HELP WITH FOOD, MONEY, ETC.

There are organisations that you can donate to, whether its money, food, etc. All of them take whatever assistance you can offer so it is best to give them a call, particularly in the lead up to Christmas to find out what they need and what they’re short on:
