Two semi-trailers loaded with $19,000 worth of hay will make their way to drought-stricken areas where farmers and animals are in desperate need.
The hay has been donated by Canterbury League Club through the ‘Buy A Bale’ campaign which is part of Rural Aid.
Rural Aid is charitable organisation that provides support to people living in the outback.
The hay that Canterbury League Club has funded will be transported to farmers in affected areas of NSW to help them feed their livestock.
“At Canterbury we support those who are in need, and our farmers are doing it tough at the moment with the drought in rural Australia,” said George Coorey, Chairman of Canterbury League Club.
“The farmers need to know that they are in the thoughts of all those at Canterbury League Club and that we want to make a difference to the rural communities who are experiencing hardship and distress.”
The drought has impacted NSW with drier than normal conditions and the forecast for the coming months is no rain, making it the severest conditions that farmers have seen in years.
