NFU MUTUAL’S Charitable Trust has donated £150,000 to The Prince’s Countryside Fund to help farmers who are struggling as a result of last year’s adverse weather.

Richard Percy, chairman of NFU Mutual and its charitable trust, said: “Many farmers are facing massive financial problems as a result of 2012’s heavy rains which decimated arable and fodder crops. As the UK’s leading rural insurer, NFU Mutual has a charitable trust which provides support for farmers in need.

“I am delighted that we are matching the £150,000 donations made by The Prince’s Countryside Fund and The Duke of Westminster to help the worst-affected farms and I hope that others will follow suit.”
