A CHARITY walk through Powys has raised more than £2,000.

The Big Inflatable Walk returned to Llanfyllin with members of the Young Farmers Club (YFC) and the local community walking 3.3 miles in eye-catching outfits to raise vital funds for mental health support in agriculture and the DPJ Foundation.

It began at The Stumble Inn in Bwlch-y-Cibau and ended in Llanfyllin Town Square, led by town mayor Councillor Peter Lewis.

Co-organiser Ffion Wright-Evans, Montgomery YFC development officer, said: "A huge thank you to everyone who made The Big Inflatable Walk a success.

"The Stumble Inn, Eagles Fish and Chip Shop, The Halcyon Yoga Company, Eagles Bistro, Cain Valley Hotel Llanfyllin, Llanfyllin SPAR, Llanfyllin Town Council, CFFI Llanfyllin YFC, Rotary Club of Westbourne, Siân Walters, Mar Parry, Kate Miles, the Chapple Gill family, our stewards and of course the wonderful inflatables.

"We are so grateful for the donations we have received – thank you to everyone who has taken the time to support us and cheer us on!"

The DPJ Foundation supports those in the agricultural sector with poor mental health by providing support and spreading awareness.

Ffion added: "The pandemic has been a challenging time for so many in our rural communities and we hope we have managed to put some smiles on faces today and spread a little joy, whilst raising funds for a great cause.

"Last but by no means least, thank you to my fellow organisers Julian, Martin and David. I’m so proud to be a part of the team.

"We go again for 2022!"

Organiser Julian Raymond-Sandy, who is a town councillor, said donations are still coming in.
