BALLINA BUSINESSES TO DELIVER THE BEST CHRISTMAS PRESENT FOR FARMERS

From the coast to the country… Ballina businesses are raising money to help drought stricken farmers.

The money will be used to fill semi-trailers with clean drinking water to send to the North West.

A $20 donation at the Cherry Street Bowling Club will purchase a carton of water.

“In the first 24 hours we raised $20,000 just from local businesses alone, so we’ve already filled a semi-trailer.”

“Once this board is filled up behind me that’s another two semi-trailers loads of water that’s going to go out.”

Organisers say they hope to make the delivery before Christmas.
