Fighting for Our Farmers

Australian farmers are the lifeblood of our country and they are in crisis.  Record breaking heat and lack of rain means farmers are struggling to feed sheep and cattle and keep crops alive. Families on the land are suffering and they need our help. Channel 9 and Rotary Australia have partnered with the National Farmers’ Federation, launching an appeal to big business and everyday Australians, so we can provide some emergency relief. 100% of donations go to the farmers and all are tax deductible via Rotary and RAWCS. Every dollar counts. Our club wlll be supporting this emergency in our own back yard and individuals are also encouraged to donate privately through the RAWCS website link
