THE Glamorgan branch of farmers' union NFU Cymru and Young Farmers Clubs in the county are donating £20,000 to help Somerset farmers hit by the recent floods.
The cash was raised during an evening in Barry Memorial Hall which saw raffles, an acution, a sit down meal, and entertainment from the Glamorgan YFC Choir.
NFU Glamorgan chairwoman Abi Reader said the fundraiser showed the strength of the farming community.
She said: “The night was a great success and an excellent opportunity for farmers and young farmers to get together.
"The generosity people showed that evening was incredible and a good demonstration of farmers and their supporting industries standing together."
She added: "It was a lot of hard work to organise but it was well worth the effort.”
More than 23,000 acres of the Somerset Levels were inundated by water in the recent floods.
