National AgDay Dalby BBQ raises serious funds for drought
Queensland farmers might still be doing it tough in the current drought conditions, but the National AgDay barbecue organised by Carrick Aland and Queensland Audit Services in Dalby will end up sending some much-needed funds their way.
A hungry crowd of about 50 lunchtime workers and general public came with appetites and generosity to raise over $800 for Buy a Bale of Hay on Thursday 21 November.
Carrick Aland Associate, Daniel Ellis, said how pleased he was with the turnout.
“Our total tally in fundraising now is just over $2,000 which is something we are really proud of,” Daniel said. “We really would like to say a big thank you to everyone who came along.”
This year’s barbecue was a success not least because of enthusiastic sponsors that supported the event.
“We would also like to thank Rabobank Dalby, Chesterfield Australia and Dalby Donut Man Col Watters for their generous support on National AgDay by supplying items for the barbecue and making it a fun day,” Daniel added.
Audrey Fresser and Emma Ingleton both won Chesterfield John Deere prize packs.
“This is very much about supporting our farmers whether they be our team, our clients or in our local community as well as their stock. We have the strength of our team across three offices working together to make a serious fundraising effort,” Daniel said.
