The City helps the Bush

There’s no doubt that farming can be a tough game, even in the best of times. For some in the farming community, particularly in north-eastern Victoria, it has never been tougher, in the first instance from the effects of the drought then by punishing water allocations and the uncertainty of farm-gate milk prices.

For the past 18 months a local Service Club has been doing something about the plight of farming families.

“Adopt-a-Farmer” a Project of the Rotary Club of Essendon North, has raised over $50,000 which has been distributed in the form of food vouchers to needy families. The project is the brainchild of Past President David Mott.

“The need for the program in today’s climate won’t go away in the short term, but there will be an endpoint, there always is. Meanwhile, we do need support for Adopt-A-Farmer, so any help in any way will be much appreciated by this important sector of the Australian community” Mr. Mott said.

For more information as to how to help this worthy cause, call David Mott on 0411-101-810.
