What’s The Latest?

Your Generosity Continues to AMAZE us!

Today Peakes Mini Bus Hire has offered us the use of a trailer (free of charge) to help us transport the last drought-relief food boxes (before Christmas) to the Upper Hunter. The use of the trailer was a very generous (and gratefully accepted) “gift”. We would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to Sharon at Peakes Mini Bus Hire because it is these gestures that – although they can appear quite small to the gift-giver – make all the difference.

But wait! There’s more. We have had 8 dozen eggs donated for our “Fresh Produce for a Farmer’s Christmas” initiative.

Help make a farming family’s Christmas special

Help us by donating any excess produce on the 6th December. We will use the produce to fill boxes for farmers in the drought-affected Upper Hunter region. For full details see our Fresh Produce for a Farmer’s Christmas page.
