Rural Aid is bringing joy in a big way to a bunch of farmers in the Forbes district in October 2018. Rural Aid is organising a Mega Farm Rescue of renovators, tradies, grey nomads and other volunteers who’ll commit to painting, plumbing, building, fencing, mechanical work or other on farm activities to bring some joy and mental relief to farmers doing it tough in this drought.
Over the week October 14 – 20 2018, we’ll be working to lift the spirits of up to 10 farming families in the Forbes district of NSW. We’ll hope to attract 150 volunteers, create a volunteers camp in the centre of Forbes, engage with the community with our outdoor cinema and create a fantastic community event as well as helping lift farmers spirits.
We want to pump vital money into the town, help local businesses with our purchases and at the same time lift the spirit of farmers doing it tough. Looks at these images of our trips before and imagine how you could be a part of this event.
If you’d like to register for this mega event, please do so through this form by selecting Forbes Mega Event as your option.
The trip will be held between October 14 and 20 in Forbes NSW. More information will be released shortly.
If you’re a farmer and you’d like to be considered for a mini makeover, please register your interest here.
