He said: “I’m confident that we have put together a very exciting, inclusive programme of activities and events for the year ahead. My hope is this will appeal to as many people as possible to ensure we have the opportunity to make 2014 a great fund raising year.

“As well as fundraising, I will use this opportunity to gain a better understanding of the needs of potential beneficiaries of BDCI and seek to explore what can be done to widen the support network. After all, this is our own meat industry charity and it is up to us to ensure it continues to thrive and remain relevant in today’s society.”
