RECENTLY, A local Chudleigh resident, Paul, who is on the Chudleigh Show Committee, offered to donate all his bales of hay to the Drought Relief project in NSW.
The hay was loaded onto Paul’s truck on Sunday 26th August. To fill the truck Tony Wadley of the Rotary Club of Deloraine also donated round bales.
Rotary Australia World Community Service (RAWCS) had established a Drought Relief Fund, which is distributing hay, grain and cash to farmers in northern NSW.
Contact was made with the Project Manager of the Northern NSW fund, Reg Pierce who is also the President of the Wauchope Rotary Club and has organized for the hay to go to a farmer whose property is located 80km south of Lightning Ridge.
The Chudleigh Community has contributed $1000, the Mole Creek Hotel Patrons $1000 and the Rotary Club of Deloraine $2500 to this Drought Relief Fund.
This money will be added to the $400,000 that the fund has raised so far and will be distributed to needy farmers either in cash or supplies
