Drought funds make it out west

2018 has been a year where so many have come together to help Australian farming families struggling from the impacts of one of the countries worst droughts.

The generosity continues as Tewantin Noosa RSL board announced at their Annual General Meeting in October a $10,000 donation to support drought stricken farmers.

The donation was presented at Tewantin Noosa Lions Clubs Drought Relief Fundraiser last month for the Longreach, Winton, Emerald and Springsure Lions Clubs in their effort to "adopt a town” to assist drought impacted families and communities.

And good news, it appears the money is making it to where it is needed.
