Psalm 104: 14-15

When I called the Helpline all those months ago all I could see was a black hole - no hope and no way out. I never thought I would find a way through. Now I can see light at the end of the tunnel and I am so grateful for the help I have received from FCN. I know that I am not on my own.

Churches are vital in supporting FCNs volunteers and their work through prayer, through financial support and by raising awareness of the help available to the farming community through FCN and its Farming Help partner organisations.
