From now until 16th December, David Evans Group will donate $2 from every pack of twine sold at its four Queensland outlets to Buy a Bale, a nation-wide appeal to support Australia’s rural communities and Aussie farmers during one of the worst droughts in history.
The Buy a Bale drought appeal is providing meaningful support for farmers by delivering hay and other essential items to farmers who have no feed left for their cattle. Every donation received for the Buy a Bale initiative has a far reaching effect. Donations have arrived in many and varied genres; some people electing to donate hay; truck drivers donating their time and diesel; and some loads Buy a Bale are paying for so they are feeding truckies and their families as well.
Donations towards the Buy A Bale Farmers card inject immediate cash into the rural towns – city cash going bush. The hay delivered saves farmers cash that they can continue to spend on other items.
David Evans Group stores at Toowoomba, Gatton, Brisbane and Nambour will all participate in the Buy a Bale appeal and with their customers’ assistance, hope to raise $6,000 over the four months. David Evans Group sees this initiative as an opportunity to give back to their rural communities and farmers who have supported them over a period of change and restructure.
Farmers in Queensland and Northern New South Wales are amongst the worst affected, and some desperately need support to keep their livelihoods and their farms productive. Participating in the Buy a Bale campaign is a great way to give some back to our farmers and It’s also an opportunity for David Evans Group to provide our customers a platform to show their care and concern.
For every pack of twine sold between the promotional period, David Evans Group will donate $2 and will also be encouraging customers to slip some cash or spare coins into the Buy a Bale donation barrels located in all our stores. It doesn’t matter whether people are in the market for farm machinery or equipment and supplies, if they are passionate about the plight of Aussie farmers, they can call into any of David Evans Group’s four stores and do their bit to help get farmer through this tough time.
