FARMERS from across the Gunnedah region have received a welcome boost thanks to a recent delivery of fodder and supplies from South Australia. More than 80 bales of hay arrived in the region on October 19 thanks to the Apex Club of Kadina South Australia. Working alongside the Gunnedah Apex Club, the Kadina Apex Club provided hay and domestic supplies –&nbsp; including dog food and non-perishable food –&nbsp; to 40 of the region’s farming families.

Kadina Apex Club member Brad Venning said the club was excited to be helping farmers in need. “We have travelled more than 1400km to help out,” Mr Venning said. “We have raised nearly $15,000 for drought support and it has been great to see not just our club members get behind it, but our community as a whole. “All told we have brought about 80 bales of hay, some of it from South Australia and the rest is from Walgett, as well as 1.6 tonnes of dog food and care packages as well.” Read Also: Gunnedah Apex Club member Sarah Cooke said the arrival of the donated goods was an example of the Apex spirit. “One day we got a phone call from the Kadina Apex Club about a project they were working on, which was these fabulous donations,” Ms Cooke said. “They really spearheaded this event and we were more than happy to help with the venue and stuff like that at this end. “It is an amazing effort for the members of their club to make the trip all the way to Gunnedah and we as a club and a community are very grateful.” The donations come off the back of a recent “Kiss a Cow” organised by Gunnedah High School student, which saw all donations go towards drought relief. Gunnedah High School student Ashleigh Mills said it was pleasing to see local farmers receive the donations. “It was awesome for us to do our bit for local farmers doing it a bit tough,” Ms Mills said. “Our whole school got behind our fundraisers, had a lot a of fun and it is so cool to see it come full circle. “Heading into year 12 next year we will be keen to keep looking at ways to help out if this drought keeps going.” Sign up for the Namoi Valley Independent’s&nbsp;weekly email newsletter.
