“Reach out” youngsters urged after tragic death

Created on 05/05/2022 @ 09:53

Young people from across the area are being urged to reach out for help and support following the tragic sudden death of a young farmer at the weekend.

Farming UK and Farmers Weekly are reporting that 25-year-old Sam Davies, from Llangedwyn, tragically died in Blackpool where the annual ‘DIY AGM 2022’ was being held, an event that attracts thousands of young farmers over three days.

In response, Montgomery YFC have offered to support members across the area.

“Montgomery YFC are heartbroken to hear of the tragic loss of one of our members over the weekend,” they released in a statement on Facebook.

“We understand that this devastating news will be having a huge impact across the YFC community and our thoughts are with family, friends and all those affected.

“We are doing our utmost to support our members through this difficult time. Please remember that you are not alone, and YFC is here to support you. Please reach out if you are struggling.

“If you can't speak to family or friends, contact an organisation who will listen and can offer support.”

The lead organiser of the weekend event, John Houseman, said that money raised would be going to a mental health charity.

“In memory, a third of the money raised will be donated to the Mind charity - a charity that focuses on ensuring that no one has to face a mental health problem alone,” he said.

“The total amount raised was £16,000, this will be split three ways between RNLI Blackpool, Air Ambulances UK, and Mind.”
