CONTRIBUTION OF CO-FOUNDERS ACKNOWLEDGED
Co-founders Charles and Tracy Alder have tendered their resignations from Rural Aid and depart the charity on May 29.
Charles and Tracy founded Rural Aid in 2015 along with Sandra Walker, founding board director, who continues to be an integral part of the donor and Farm Army team today.
After assisting with the transition of roles in recent months, Charles and Tracy have made the decision to depart Rural Aid to pursue other opportunities.
Rural Aid has grown to become one of Australia’s largest rural charities built on the success of the Buy a Bale campaign.
Rural Aid Chairman, Alex Hutton said that Charles and Tracy will always be recognised for their contribution to the foundation of the charity which is now assisting farmers and rural communities across Australia.
“On behalf of the Board and the Rural Aid team, we would like to extend our appreciation to Charles and Tracy and, wish them well for the future.”
Charles and Tracy said they would like to acknowledge their continuing connection to rural Australia and thank those who have helped create Rural Aid, from hay suppliers to farmers, truckies, volunteers, donors – both corporate and individual – and especially the dedicated team who are passionate about delivering support to those suffering from fire, flood or drought and will continue to do so.
