Benevolent Trust raises six-figure sum

Fri, 23 Aug 2013

Almost £150,000 has been raised to help farmers who were hit by the heavy snow in March.

The Agricultural Benevolent Trust's 'Snow Fund' was set up after the freak weather left hundreds of animals dead - something which caused huge financial and emotional toil for farmers.

The money is being allocated to individuals who have found themselves stuck with the loss of income.

Chairman of the trust Graham Crowe says the damaging effects of the situation will be felt for years to come (audio):
