Tuesday 31 May 2022           Bonang Hall                                       9.00am – 11.30am

  • These events are to provide an opportunity for:
  • farmers and farmworkers to apply for the $500 Drought Recovery Rotary EFTPOS Card* before the program ceases on 30 June 2022
  • to chat with government, charities, not-for-profit and agricultural organisations
  • To connect with support after living through the immediate and longer-term effects of drought and severe weather events.

To be eligible for the *Rotary Card you need to:

  • Be an Australian citizen or permanent resident who is 18 years of age or older
  • Be a farmer, farmworker, farm supplier or contractor
  • Be in need of financial assistance to pay for expenses such as food, petrol, utility bills, or another need.

Bring along your PIC code and driver’s licence (if you have not received a $500 voucher for drought assistance from Rotary before).

It is an excellent opportunity for farmers, families and rural communities to grab morning tea, catch up with friends and neighbors and find out what support is available during drought and tough times.

If you’re in the area, come along and say g’day!

Please spread the word.
