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.
