Fane Valley are delighted to be able to present a cheque for £3000 to Air Ambulance Northern Ireland in association with Ulster Farmers' Union's pledge to raise £100,000 for this local life saving service.

Victor Chestnutt, UFU - Deputy President; Grace Williams, AANI Area Fundraising Manager and Trevor Lockhart, Fane Valley - Chief Executive are celebrating the news that sales of the Ulster Farmers’ Union 2018 charity calendar through Fane Valley Stores have raised £3000 for Air Ambulance Northern Ireland.

Now in its 100th year of representing farmers, the UFU is aiming to raise £100,000 for this life saving charity. The UFU would like to thank Fane Valley and their customers for all their support and help in reaching this ambitious goal. Calendar sales from the UFU groups are still being tallied and an overall total will be announced soon. To show your support and make a donation visit www.ufuni.org

"Fane Valley staff and our customers have been very generous in their support of the UFU calendars through our Store network for Air Ambulance Northern Ireland. Our farmers especially appreciate how vital this medical service is and can be, to people living in rural areas and farm workers. To know that the Air Ambulance can get to anywhere in the province within 25 minutes brings emergency hospital care direct to the casualty and those in great need. This such service is vital and is most needed in Northern Ireland."   Said Trevor Lockhart, Fane Valley - Chief Executive
