Rural Aid is bringing joy in a big way to a bunch of farmers in the Lightning Ridge district in August, 2019. There will be renovators, tradies, grey nomads and other volunteers who’ll commit to painting, plumbing, building, fencing, mechanical work or other on farm activities to bring some joy and mental relief to farmers doing it tough in this drought.
Over the week August 25 – 31, 2019, we’ll be working to lift the spirits of up to 10 farming families in the Lightning Ridge district of QLD. We’ll hope to attract 150 volunteers, create a volunteers camp in the centre of lightning ridge, engage with the community with our outdoor cinema and create a fantastic community event as well as helping lift farmers spirits.
We want to pump vital money into the town, help local businesses with our purchases and at the same time lift the spirit of farmers doing it tough. Looks at these images of our trips before and imagine how you could be a part of this event.
If you’d like to register for this mega event, please do so through this form by selecting Forbes Mega Event as your option.
The trip will be held between August 25 and 31 in Lightning Ridge, QLD. More information will be released later.
If you’d like your property to be considered for a Farm Rescue team of volunteers and tradies to come and work their magic, please complete this form and you’ll be considered.
Once you’ve registered we’ll be in touch with final farms being selected
