Farmer sup­port

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - NEWS - Madeleine Stephens

Kar­alee on Pre­ston will run Parma for a Farmer to raise funds for strug­gling farm­ers through­out Au­gust.

THE Kar­alee on Pre­ston has jumped on the Parma for a Farmer band­wagon and is do­nat­ing 10 per cent of each parmi­giana sold to a cam­paign to as­sist drought-stricken farm­ers.

Kar­alee on Pre­ston gen­eral man­ager Ash­leigh Cra­nen­burgh said he felt for all the farm­ers do­ing it tough in­ter­state.

“We have a strong affin­ity with sup­port­ing farm­ers, es­pe­cially be­cause there are a lot of coun­try folk that come here, and I think in some ways it is an op­por­tu­nity to help those who help us out,” he said.

Mr Cra­nen­burgh said the Kar­alee would con­trib­ute $3 per parmi­giana sold to Ru­ral Aid’s Buy a Bale cam­paign, sup­ported by more than 400 bars and restau­rants across the coun­try.

“Whether it be one or three (dol­lars), that’s prob­a­bly in­signif­i­cant; I think the thing that is sig­nif­i­cant is the fact we are spon­sor­ing the ap­peal,” he said.

The Kar­alee will con­tinue the farm­ing fundraiser un­til the end of Au­gust and pos­si­bly longer if suc­cess­ful.
