Return of ‘The Farmer Wants a Wife’

Farmer Wife TD Farm
Calling all single farmers - The Farmer Wants A Wife is back!

SOUTHERN Area Hospice Services is calling on single farmers to come forward to take part in its upcoming fun-filled fundraising event ‘The Farmer Wants a Wife’.

The event will take place on Saturday, November 3, in the Armagh City Hotel.

‘The Farmers Wants a Wife’ will see a number of single farmers take to the stage in the Armagh City Hotel in a bid to find themselves a potential future wife as well as helping to raise vital funds for Southern Area Hospice Services.

On the night, the participating farmers will be interviewed by MC Malachi Cush, with some of them performing a special talent as part of their interview.

Previous talents have included everything from cow milking demonstrations to some of the country’s finest jiving. This year is sure to be just as entertaining.

After the farmers have all had a chance to impress, the audience and judging panel will place their votes to determine who the winner is.

This year’s judging panel includes BBC Radio Ulster’s Lynette Fay and the President of the Young Farmers’ Clubs of Ulster James Speers.

Once the winner has been crowned, there will be a blind date finale to the show where the winning farmer will hopefully get his wife! There will be a disco with DJ Jo Mac to end the night – with a great night guaranteed.

All the funds raised will help Southern Area Hospice Services to continue its work providing care and support to local people who are living with cancer and other life-limiting illnesses, such as Multiple Sclerosis and Motor Neurone Disease.

With a fundraising target of £2.6 million, the hospice relies heavily on the support of the local community.
