Let’s give it to the farm­ers

Big Rigs - - READER CORNER -

“LETS give it to the farm­ers” is in­spired by Buddy Goodes’ fan­tas­tic idea af­ter find­ing a $2 coin in his wash­ing ma­chine.

I would like to an­nounce and in­vite you all to be part of a com­mu­nity event to help out our fel­low farm­ers and give back to the peo­ple who work so hard in the tough con­di­tions this beau­ti­ful coun­try serves up.

Let’s do some­thing be­fore we have an­other farmer’s life taken and make sure they know that we are here to help where we can.

This will not fix the prob­lem but we can help and it may just stop an­other farmer hav­ing to sell and give up the land they work so hard for. While also ac­knowl­edg­ing that we know the pres­sure and metal heath is­sues this is caus­ing the great men and women of the land.

Buddy Goode has kindly of­fered his ser­vices for this event – will you?

So, what am I ask­ing for? Pre­sen­ters, dona­tions, raf­fle prices, vol­un­teers, guests ap­pear­ances/ per­for­mances, food stalls, bev­er­age, light­ing, sound, con­tacts, face paint­ing, trac­tor rides, Har­ley rides and the list goes on.

I am not a farmer, I am from a small farm­ing town (130 peo­ple) just three hours from Syd­ney, four from Melbourne, and while we are not even close to the dev­as­ta­tion that out brothers and sis­ters to the west and north are we can all help.

I have spo­ken to Bren­dan Far­rell, founder of Hay Run­ners Aus­tralia, an amaz­ing man putting the coun­try and its peo­ple first at his own cost and time. He also on board. So how about you? To join, do­nate or for any questions please feel free to con­tact me at any time on 0455 330 611 or heroad­house­on­river­side@gmail.com.au.

Let’s do what we can. — Michele De­laney
