Farming community spearheads raising of £22,000 for NI Children’s Hospice

The farming community from right across Northern Ireland, Scotland and England have come together to raise vital funds for NI Children's Hospice as it continues to provide wonderful care for a young Trillick boy living with a rare neurodegenerative condition.
Andrew McFarland, who is just eight years old, is living with a variant form of Late Infantile Batten Disease (CLN5) which causes blindness, complex epilepsy, loss of mobility and the ability to communicate.
