Buy a Bale to help our Farmers14 Aug 2018
Armidale Central has partnered with Rural Aid Australia, the Buy a Bale campaign and Woolworths Armidale to be a collection point for local farmers in need.
Customers who would like to donate can leave non-perishable groceries, pet food or cash at Armidale Central Woolworths.
Amanda Frost, Retail Manager, Armidale Central said, “We’re bringing the community together for those who are doing it tough, we want to raise $9500 – enough to send a semi-trailer load of hay to our struggling farmers on behalf of Armidale Central.
“We’re kicking off the campaign with a $1000 donation,” she said.
Buy a Bale is a branch of Rural Aid which works to support rural communities across Australia during times of natural disasters, and when our communities need a helping hand.
“Everyone has the opportunity to make a difference with a small contribution. $20 is enough to buy a small bale of hay and food donations can be delivered to the families who are being tested through one of the driest periods our state has ever seen,” Ms Frost said.
