The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - News -

Drought has hit farm­ers hard across much of Aus­tralia and the im­pact has spread well be­yond the farm gate to other ru­ral and re­gional busi­nesses and com­mu­ni­ties.

This col­lec­tive suf­fer­ing is of­ten over­looked in times of drought-based crises.

In sup­port of both farm­ers and their com­mu­ni­ties do­ing it tough across Aus­tralia, ACE Ra­dio Broad­cast­ers, through ra­dio sta­tions 3WM, MIXX FM and The Weekly Ad­ver­tiser, is get­ting in­volved in a na­tional re­lief ef­fort.

As part of a We Love Warracknab­eal pro­mo­tion this Fri­day and to recog­nise and sup­port our re­gional busi­nesses and com­mu­ni­ties, ACE Ra­dio will pro­vide a trol­ley to fill with do­nated prod­ucts bought from Warracknab­eal busi­nesses to send to drought-af­fected fam­i­lies.

Peo­ple keen to get in­volved can buy prod­ucts from any Warracknab­eal dis­trict busi­ness to place in the trol­ley.

The trol­ley of goods will be a gift from the peo­ple of Warracknab­eal.

In tak­ing part, shop­pers will be sup­port­ing Warracknab­eal busi­nesses as well as Aus­tralian farm­ers bat­tling the drought.

An added in­cen­tive is that any pur­chase on the day from busi­nesses par­tic­i­pat­ing in the We Love Warracknab­eal pro­mo­tion, listed in The Weekly Ad­ver­tiser, will in­clude au­to­matic en­try into a draw for two $250 vouch­ers redeemable at any of the par­tic­i­pat­ing busi­nesses.

ACE Ra­dio will also be con­tribut­ing to the farmer-re­lief trol­ley, which will be at an out­side-broad­cast site in Scott Street on Fri­day from 10am to 4.30pm, with pur­chases in Warracknab­eal. ACE Ra­dio has ac­cess to truck driv­ers de­liv­er­ing re­lief do­na­tions to farm­ing fam­i­lies in need.
