The district may be enjoying some nice soaking showers but unfortunately unless it becomes weeks of rain and then some the drought will continued unabated.
And there are districts throughout the state that have missed out completely on this rain front so support for farmers and their communities needs to continue.
Locally Chloe Bayley has decided to put on a Farmers Drought Relief Fundraising Ball to be held at Singleton Rugby Club on Saturday, November 10 from 6:00pm. Living in the rural community of Mt Olive Chloe said she saw first hand the impacts of drought on farmers.
“I have also visited communities like Coonamble that are doing it really tough so I thought why not try and raise some funds to help these people and their communities because without farmers we have nothing,”she said.
All proceeds from the ball will be donated to Aussie Helpers.
Tickets costs $70pp and are available by contacting Chloe on 0422181941 or firstname.lastname@example.org
