Downlands Buys Bales for Rural Families


In a fundraiser that started only last week, Downlands College has already raised $3748 for the Buy A Bale campaign, supporting our rural communities in drought.

"We know families are hurting and are regularly in touch with current and past Downlands families, to do all that we can to help", said Stephen McIllhatton, Downlands College Principal.

Downlands chose to support the Buy A Bale campaign as they believe the money is being put to very good use, supplying hay, diesel and Farmers Cards to the families that need it most.

"We raised over $500 at our recent Community dinner and have had more parents, past students and even complete strangers who have heard me speak on radio, send through many thousands more to support the cause", Mr McIllhatton continued.
