Li­ons Club, RSL and com­mu­nity sup­ports farm­ers

The Free Press (Corowa) - - FRONT PAGE -

Drought stricken farm­ers are ap­pre­cia­tive of the gro­ceries that were gath­ered by mem­bers of the Corowa and How­long com­mu­nity.

The Corowa RSL was the drop off point for food and any other items which ranged from per­sonal items to dog food. These goods were then passed on to the Li­ons club as part of ‘Need For Feed’.

So far up to date, 75 truck­loads and 46 trailer loads of food and goods have been de­liv­ered to those farm­ers in need.

These ve­hi­cles are run­ning up north any­thing up to three times a month and all on a vol­un­tary basis. Any money do­na­tions that come for­ward will be passed on to the Li­ons Club ‘Need For Feed’ to pur­chase fod­der for stock, as hay has be­come very scarce in other ar­eas.

Once again, thank you to all who par­tic­i­pated and if you wish to con­tinue please call Li­ons Club Pres­i­dent Cor­rinie Barker on 0407 888 172 or Sec­re­tary Les John­son on (02) 6033 0606. Where there’s a need there’s a Lion.
