Sporties Barooga have been long time supporters of the Barooga Lions and the work they do with Need for Feed to help farming families in regional Australia cope with the effects of natural disaster on their farms and livelihoods.
This week, we are incredibly proud to continue that support with a $3500 donation going to Need for Feed, enabling them to purchase of an entire truckload of hay. The hay will be joining a convoy of more than 100 trucks and 50 support vehicles heading for the New England region to help 400 families.
There is still plenty of work to be done though, with Linda and Darren from Need for Feed telling us that they currently have 1500 families on their books who need help and there’s no sign conditions will be improving any time soon.
Anyone who would like to show their support, donations can be made to Need for Feed at their website www.needforfeed.org or you can bring in non-perishable donations to us here at Sporties Barooga.
