£10,000 raised in memory of Agnes

£10,000 raised in memory of Agnes thumbnailValerie Saunders of Chest Heart and Stroke receives a £10,000 cheque from Harold Dickey, Heather Dickey, Brian Dickey and Philip Dickey, the proceeds from the sales of their Dvd ‘Working To Get The Job Done’.

BRIAN Dickey's farming diversification DVD has raised a staggering £10,000 for Northern Ireland Chest, Heart and Stroke!
The Galgorm farmer decided on the fundraiser in memory of his mother, Agnes, who passed away in 2011.
Agnes played a major role in maintaining the family domestics - and at the same time helped out with the farming chores.
The DVD shows how Brian has diversified into contracting work while still maintaining an operational farm with sheep, cattle and their main item, poultry production.
Brian and his son Philip provide seasonal contracting services - beginning in springtime with dung spreading, ploughing and sowing.
Later in the season they do silage mowing and bailing, both square and round bales.
Haylage production also features prominently.
The busy schedule includes harvesting cereals, some of which they have sown.
Last year the Guardian told our readers that the DVD was on sale at various outlets throughout the Province.
This week Brian contacted the paper with the brilliant news that the Dvd sales and other donations saw them reach the £10,000 mark - an unbelievable feat.
“We did it in memory of my mother and cannot thank the public enough for getting behind the fund-raiser in such a way.
“To every single person who supported us may I say a special thank-you," concluded Brian.
