Attribute statement to: Rural Aid CEO John Warlters.
Following updated advice from heath authorities, Rural Aid announced that it will be postponing the 10 Towns Makeover at Gayndah Queensland, due to start on 22 March to 28 March.
The decision comes after government recommendations that all non-essential public gatherings of more than 500 people be cancelled in the interests of safety.
The safety of our Farm Army volunteers, Rural Aid staff and Board members, our stakeholders, community members and supporters remain paramount, and this will be the priority for us. A new date will be set for Gayndah’s makeover once health authorities advise it is safe to do so.
