Supporting Buy a Bale

Slow Food Hunter Valley volunteers were thrilled to be running the Cool Bar at the Maitland Show. This gave us the opportunity to raise money to support the Buy a Bale Hunter Appeal for our local farmers. According to the Maitland Mercury “The Maitland Mercury, Newcastle Herald, Hunter Valley News and The Scone Advocate have joined forces with the charity Rural Aid and its Buy A Bale Campaign to help Hunter farmers as they fight to survive the dry conditions” (see full details here).

Our Cool Bar provided watermelon juice, iced black tea, iced flavoured (raspberry and strawberry) tea and watermelon granita.

Thank you to our farmers who came up with the produce in spite of the harsh weather. Thanks to Liz for her excellent teas, Andrew for keeping the ice supply going and making a huge contribution to the pack. Thanks to Amorelle for working behind the scenes as well as at the show. Thanks to Bob and Helen for making the yummy watermelon granita which was a hit and to everyone else who juiced, served, publicised, cleaned, sold, talked, cleaned some more, organised, sliced, diced, hefted watermelon, flogged achachas and … you guessed it … cleaned some more. Well done!

We would like to say thank you to Felicia and Amorelle who made a final push to increase sales by carrying around watermelons and doing the “hard sell” on stragglers and other traders at the show.
