Trundle here we come!
Almost time to hit the road and make your way to Trundle. By the time you receive this Grant and I will be almost there. We are really looking forward to meeting you and thanking you in person for being a part of this trip.
We have started to make an impact already, local business have been supported, supplies purchased, food stuffs ordered, school P & F groups locked in to do catering, just about all available accommodation has been snapped up for our corporate sponsors Forsythes Recruitment. It’s all systems go in Trundle.
We are looking for two people out of our volunteers to help Rosey in the kitchen during the week, this would be to help make lunches and tidy up at the end of meals etc. If you would like to put your hand up for this please call Rosey on 0401 699 108
Dog owners. We know you will be mindful that not everyone has the same attachment to dogs that you may have, to this end we ask that you have control of your dogs behaviour at all times.
Whilst on Farm Rescue we follow the NSW regulations regarding prohibited areas as follows:
- within 10 metres of a children’s play area
- within 10 metres of food preparation or consumption areas,
- school grounds
- child care centres
- wildlife protection areas.
When we first got involved in Trundle my talks were with John Southon the Principal of the local school, John had been on ABC radio talking about the plight of rural kids and how difficult it is for the families to provide basic provisions. To that end we approached two local business and asked them to source products that were on his wish list, and we would purchase them so that each family could take home a care package.
Unfortunately the business’s approached felt this was not something they could do. So I am going to put it out there if you would like to pack a couple of items from the list below we will donate them to the school.
- Canned foods i.e soups/tinned tomatoes/fruit
- Pasta Sauces
- Long life milk
- Bottled Water
- Toilet Paper
- Scott Towel
- Body Wash
- Vitamin E Cream
- Lip Gloss/Vaseline
- Nit Shampoo
In town there is an Op shop that is a source of clothing for the locals. They are in need of a few things to get through the winter. If you have any of the following please bring them along to donate.
