Buy A Bale sup­ports farm­ing fam­i­lies at Xmas

Deniliquin Pastoral Times - - NEWS -

Lo­cals have two op­por­tu­ni­ties to sup­port the drought char­ity ‘Buy A Bale’ in the lead up to Christ­mas.

Soul Pat­tin­son Phar­macy is look­ing for do­na­tions of non-per­ish­able food items to help ‘Feed a Farmer and his Fam­ily’ this Christ­mas.

With the fes­tive sea­son fast ap­proach­ing this will be an ex­cep­tion­ally harder time for farm­ers and their fam­i­lies.

‘‘We thought it would be a great idea to help,’’ phar­macy man­ager Liz Thur­row­good said.

‘‘Ev­ery­one is go­ing through a tough time dur­ing this drought and any way we can help we will do it.

‘‘I have been through it my­self and know what it’s like to live on a farm and deal with the strug­gle of a drought.

‘‘It means just grab­bing an ex­tra item when you are do­ing some shop­ping. I can re­mem­ber not be­ing able to buy lux­ury food items be­cause we couldn’t af­ford it and the kids missed out. It’s just giv­ing them those lit­tle things that re­ally make a big dif­fer­ence to their way of life.’’

Un­wrapped pre­sents are also wel­come as part of the cam­paign, with a sep­a­rate do­na­tion bin lo­cated at the phar­macy in Cressy St, De­niliquin.

De­niliquin res­i­dent Faye Croft is also sup­port­ing the ‘Buy A Bale’ foun­da­tion by host­ing a trivia night to­mor­row at the De­niliquin Golf Club.

On the night you can ex­pect clas­sic trivia ques- tions, ta­ble games, chal­lenges and a silent auc­tion of goods and ser­vices, vouch­ers and cash do­nated from lo­cal busi­nesses.

Tick­ets are go­ing quick so get your team or­gan­ised.

To­day is your last chance to take ad­van­tage of the re­duced ticket price of $15 per per­son. To­mor­row, tick­ets will be $20. Pre-formed teams are en­cour­aged to book by the ta­ble.

Doors open at 7pm for a 7.30pm start. Please bring your own sup­per.

For more in­for­ma­tion on the trivia night or to pre­pur­chase a ticket, con­tact Faye on 5881 6716.

De­niliquin Soul Pat­tin­son Phar­macy as­sis­tant Brooke Wil­son en­cour­ages peo­ple to do­nate.
