Farmers and workers asked to aid Kosovo
By FWi staff
FARMERS and farm workers are being asked to contribute part of their wages to help their refugees fleeing Kosovo.
Contract labour firm LKL Services is contacting both its contract herdsmen and farmer customers to ask if they will donate 1% of their Aprils gross income.
The company, which has staff on around 200 UK dairy units, has promised to add another 50p to each Pound raised.
“The crisis has really hit a chord with many of our customers and herd managers,” said George Gordon, LKL general manager.
“Many of the people involved are farmers having to leave the land they have worked on for so many years.”
