A charity campaign that has seen farms around the country display bright pink silage bales in aid of breast cancer research has raised more than £18,500 this year.
This has smashed the previous sum of more than £10,000 raised last year.
It is the third consecutive year the initiative has been run, with Volac, merchants and manufacturers Trioplast, donating £3 to research charity Breast Cancer Now for each roll of its pink Topwrap film purchased.
“The response we’ve had to the campaign has been nothing short of amazing,” said Jackie Bradley from Volac.
“The aim was to help raise awareness of the disease – while all the time raising money for a fantastic cause.
“We want to extend our wholehearted thanks to everyone who has taken part.”
