Graziers invited to register for Rotary help

Northside Produce Rotary drought project
Rotary members and the Northside Produce team are calling on graziers to register for assistance.

Despite the recent rain we have had in Bundaberg, plenty of areas around us are still doing it hard, missing out on much of the rain that others have been celebrating in. Northside Produce Agency has partnered with Rotary to lend a helping hand to our struggling graziers and their livestock.

Thanks to generous donations from Rotary, Northside Produce Agency is asking all graziers that have been or are continuing to be affected by the recent natural disasters of fire or drought, to register for Rotary help, by filling in a form in store or on line at their webpage – www.northsideproduceagency.com.au/help_request

“All requests will be taken into consideration,” said Brian Gordon, owner and manager of Northside Produce Agency.

“The important thing to remember is this is for those who are truly struggling to keep going. 

“This is not cash, Rotary have purchased a quantity of stock for producers in need to access – what we are doing is putting together packages that suit the particular area, tailored to what that graziers tell us they need.”

Ian Mylrea, representing the Rotary District of 9570, isn’t surprised by the interest so far. 

“We know that, despite the rain, people in our local area and beyond are still in the grip of one of the largest droughts ever or are still living in makeshift accommodation due to the fires that wiped out entire areas” he said. 

“This program demonstrates a strong commitment to the local region and an even further commitment to ensure the rebuilding of breeding herds decimated by recent drought”

Tim Sayre, President of the Bundaberg and District Chamber of Commerce, welcomed the initiative. 

“Using local businesses that have been impacted by the knock-on effects of natural disasters such as drought or fires is absolutely essential.” he said. 

“Too often we see donations of goods and products being shipped into a location, cutting out local businesses that are also struggling. 

“The Chamber encourages anybody who is wanting to help out to purchase from local stores, such as Northside Produce Agency, and keep the money locally in those areas who are hurting, whether that is from drought or fires, here or anywhere in Australia.”

To find out more, or how to register for Rotary help, contact Brian at Northside Produce Agency or fill in the form on their website.
