Cootamundra Hub to help drought affected farmers
The crippling effect of drought on farming communities in NSW has inspired Intereach Cootamundra Community Hub to launch a fun fundraiser for farmers.
Local families with babies and preschool-aged children have been invited to attend Wiggle and Giggle at the Hub on Tuesday 14 August dressed as farmers or farm animals.
Participants are asked to bring items to donate to a care pack for affected farmers, such as non-perishable food, bottles of water, nappies, pet food and toiletries.
Don’t attend Wiggle and Giggle? Local people are still welcome to drop their donated goods in to Intereach Cootamundra Community Hub where staff will ensure every donation is passed along to drought-affected farming families.
Intereach CEO Keryn Fox said, “This is an opportunity for local people to pitch in to help farming families who are doing it really tough. It’s all about coming together as a community and doing our part, every donation helps and every donation is welcome, nothing’s too little.”
Wiggle and Giggle meets at the Intereach Cootamundra Community Hub every Tuesday from 10.30 am till 12 pm and new members are always welcome. The group offers parents of young children an opportunity to meet, chat and access information while children enjoy fun activities that support their development.
