Southern Area Hospice Services have revealed that tickets are on sale for ‘The Farmer Wants a Wife’, a fundraising event at Armagh City Hotel on Friday, September 25.

A number of single farmers are ready to take to the stage at ‘The Farmer Wants a Wife’ in a bid to impress all the single ladies in the audience in the hope of winning themselves a date with a potential future wife.

The farmers will be interviewed on stage by MC for the event, Malachi Cush who will put them through their paces by quizzing them about their farms, their machinery and of course what qualities they are looking for in a potential future wife.

All the money raised at ‘The Farmer Wants a Wife’ will help Southern Area Hospice Services to continue their work in the local area, caring for people who are living with Cancer and other life-limiting illnesses, such as Multiple Sclerosis and Motor Neurone Disease.

In order to maintain the level of care currently available, Southern Area Hospice Services must raise £2.38 million in 2015 alone - events such as the’ The Farmer Wants a Wife’ make a valuable contribution towards this target.

If you would like to come along and support the farmers and the Southern Area Hospice Services get your tickets. They are £12.50 each and are on sale from Southern Area Hospice Services reception (Courtenay Hill, Newry), Armagh City Hotel reception, Tullyherron Farm Feeds, by ringing Anne on 028 30251333 or online at
