THE DPJ FOUNDATION

This year as a business we have chosen to support The DPJ Foundation.  Our aim is to raise as much awareness and funds for the charity.

About The DPJ Foundation

The DPJ Foundation is a Welsh mental health charity to support those in agriculture and rural communities with mental health problems.

The Foundation was set up in Pembrokeshire in July 2016 following the death of Daniel Picton-Jones.  Daniel’s suicide rocked the community, his wife Emma realised very quickly the lack of support that was available for those suffering with poor mental health in rural communities.  It was announced at Daniel’s funeral that a fund would be set up that would provide support to those, like Daniel, who were suffering from poor mental health.  It became clear that there was a lack of awareness around mental health, everyone had been touched by suicide but very little was being done to combat the issue.

How you can get involved

There are a number of ways you can get involved in helping.
