AWARD-winning Llandysul cheese maker Caws Teifi is raising money for the Wildlife Trust of South and West Wales through the sales of its organic halloumi.

Caws Teifi, based at Glynhynod Farm, has been donating a percentage of proceeds from every sale of the halloumi cheese to the Trust since May this year.

Following the arson attack at the Cilgerran Wildlife Centre which completely destroyed the iconic Kingfisher observation hide in September, Caws Teifi has handed over £98.03 towards the hide appeal.

Jenny McClelland, fromTeifi Cheese said: “We at Caws Teifi wanted to donate to The Wildlife Trust of South and West Wales because we are very aware of how wonderful the eco-system is around us, how important it is for us to farm, and how fragile it is.

“Our company is named after the magnificent river Teifi that flows in the hills surrounding the farm and we want to support the Welsh Widlife Centre in Cilgerran for all the wonderful work it does in keeping this precious part of nature thriving.”

The Wildlife Trust is looking to raise around £20,000 to replace the burnt-out hide with something of a similar size but with a fire-resistant structure.

"What happened at the Kingfisher hide really does threaten the future of the reserve, both as an important wildlife haven and as a place for people to enjoy engaging with our Welsh wildlife,” said Gina Gavigan, marketing and development manager for the trust.
