Mor­ven pro­duc­ers get spe­cial break

Chinchilla News - - WEST -

CHIN­CHILLA’S Drought An­gels de­scended on Mor­ven on Satur­day, ready to look af­ter farm­ers in need of a day off.

Their Farm­ers’ RDO (Ru­ral Day Off ), now in its 11th it­er­a­tion, is run wher­ever lo­cal pro­duc­ers ask the An­gels to go, and Drought An­gels di­rec­tor Jenny Gai­ley said that was why Mor­ven farm­ers were cho­sen.

“Mor­ven was one of the ar­eas where we have seen a clus­ter of farm­ers come through re­quest­ing as­sis­tance from us, and we know that there hasn’t been a lot of as­sis­tance re­ceived in that area as well.

“So we de­cided to see what we could do to help the com­mu­nity and the re­sponse was just amaz­ing,” she said.

Some­times the lit­tle things like self-care get for­got­ten in the midst of life, which is why Drought An­gels brought a myr­iad of peo­ple with them.

Hair­dress­ing, beauty treat­ments, hay, food, en­ter­tain­ment and a whole host of other es­sen­tials and lux­u­ries were brought out.
