From individuals and service groups to our local businesses, Singleton continues to get behind our drought stricken farmers.

And on Saturday, September 15 from 8am to 12pm the Singleton Grooming Salon is holding a ‘Paws out for the Drought’ fundraiser.

Owner Shavon Smith explains five dollars from every “splash and dash” wash is going to be donated to Drought Angels.

“I chose this charity as the assistance goes straight to the people who really need it,” she says.

“At 9:30am we are also having a community dog walk from the salon to Rose Point Park and back.”

Shavon – who has been operating her dog wash business for over twelve months now – has a property at Coonabarabran so she is well aware of just how tough conditions are at the moment.

Drought Angels is a small charity and they pride themselves on offering individualised support to each and every family.

Their level of assistance consists of providing stock feed, financial support via pre-paid visas and local produce vouchers from within the communities, moral support through personal face to face or phone contact and referrals to other support networks as needed.

‘Paws out for the Drought’ activities kick off at 8am with:

🥓 Breakfast BBQ brought to you by Singleton High School;

☕️ Coffee brought to you by Van Dan Vintage Caravan;

🛁 $15 Splash n’ Dash brought to you by Singleton Grooming Salon and will be running all day - $5 from each bath will be donated;
