Club directors Darryl Goodwin, Ray Warren and Michael Quinn were on board on Sunday, November 25 to present Buy-A-Bale Rural Aid’s general manager Wayne Thomson with the big cheque.
This $15,000 is in addition to the $9500 donated by both the Lithgow Workies and the community back in September for a road train of hay, which was delivered to the district’s farmers.
The Lithgow Workies wanted to give farmers in the area ample time and the best opportunity possible to register for assistance through Rural Aid’s Buy A Bale program.
Now, over 20 Farmers have registered and this $15,000 will be assisting these farmers and their families with necessities such as fuel cards, gift cards, groceries, pet food, water and other needs.
The club sent a big thank you to its members and the community supporting its farmers in times of severe drought.
