UNIVERSITY freshers have learnt about the health benefits of drinking milk and making it part of their daily diet, as the Farmers’ Union of Wales handed out free flavoured milk samples to students on campus. Joining the Aberystwyth

University Freshers Fair was FUW Ceredigion County Executive Officer Mared Rand Jones, who said: “Drinking milk and making it part of your daily diet is so underrated and I am really pleased that we got that message across to first year students here today. Milk and dairy products have an important part to play in our daily diet as they provide an important source of protein and calcium and contain essential vitamins and minerals, all of which are needed for a balanced diet. “There are many other benefits

associated with drinking milk, some of which our students were not aware of. For example, it has been said that thanks to the many vitamins and minerals that are in milk, it can work as a stress reliever. After a long, hard day at of lectures and studying, sit

down and drink a warm glass of milk. It really can help to relieve muscle tension and soothe your nerves. “Milk is great for many things and

can also help in boosting your energy. When you’re struggling to get through the day and you need a little pick-me- up, an ice cold glass of milk can help you feel revitalised in no time and is much healthier than many sugary energy drinks.” The FUW further encouraged

freshers to make sure they buy Welsh milk and dairy products when out doing their weekly shopping. “We also used this opportunity to

encourage students to make sure they buy Welsh milk and dairy products such as butter, cheese and yogurts. With that they support our home dairy industries and of course all those second and third sector businesses associated with agriculture. Our dairy farmers have had a rough ride over recent years and need all the support they can get - buying Welsh produce whenever we can is something everyone of us can do to support the cause and boost the rural economy in doing so,” she added.

has taken to social media to support Macmillan Cancer Support’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning. Elin Jones has shared a ‘selfie’

photograph holding a cuppa, as part of Macmillan Cancer Support’s #RaiseAMug campaign to raise awareness of Macmillan’s flagship fundraising event, World’s Biggest Coffee Morning, on Friday (Sept 30). She also attended a coffee morning

at the Senedd last week, where Assembly Members came together for a cuppa and a slice of cake and to hear more about Macmillan’s work supporting people affected by cancer in Wales. Elin is now asking the people of

Ceredigion to get involved by sharing their own #RaiseAMug selfie, or by hosting or attending a coffee morning in their local area, on or around this coming Friday. The AM for Ceredigion said:

“Cancer touches the lives of so many of us, whether that’s personally, or supporting friends, family and colleagues with a cancer diagnosis. One in three of us will get cancer. In Wales, more than 19,000 people are diagnosed with cancer each year, with more than 130,000 people here currently living with a cancer diagnosis.” She added: “Macmillan Cancer

Support helps people from the moment they are diagnosed, with medical and

practical help, as well as emotional and financial support. But they rely on donations from the public to help fund their work. “That’s why I am supporting the

World’s Biggest Coffee Morning and am glad to hear of so many coffee mornings going on in Ceredigion on Friday, September 30. As well as helping to raise funds and awareness for Macmillan, it’s also a lovely way to get together with friends, colleagues or neighbours over a mug of tea or coffee and a slice of cake.” Susan Morris, Head of Services for

Macmillan Cancer Support in Wales, commented: “It’s great to see our elected Assembly Members supporting Macmillan in Wales through their own coffee morning, and we have loved seeing

as World’s Biggest Coffee Morning help fund Macmillan’s work in Wales, including funding or nurses, physiotherapists, welfare benefits advisors and our information centres in some of Wales’s hospitals, as well as campaigning for better cancer care for patients. “Now in its 26th year, World’s

Biggest Coffee Morning is our biggest annual fundraising event. Last year saw an incredible £26.7m raised for Macmillan – and we are on track to equal if not beat that record this year.” To sign up to host a coffee morning,

cancer, call Macmillan’s Support Line on 0808 808 00 00 (8am to 8pm Monday to Friday) or visit
