NFU Scotland’s North East Region continues to recognise the incredible contribution of the late Joe Watson to food and agriculture in the region.
Joe, former Agricultural Editor at the Press and Journal died suddenly in 2014.
Every year since then, the region has held an annual charity stockjudging and social evening, donating thousands of pounds to some of Joe’s favourite charities. More than 200 farmers attended this year’s event, hosted recently by the Thomson family at Middleton of Potterton near Aberdeen raising more than £2400 for Scotland’s Charity Air Ambulance.
The hosts and representatives of the region presented the cheque to SCAA at The Royal Highland Show held at Edinburgh last week.
