Fire affected communities continue to receive support
The recent fires have impacted several communities, with many growers and Shires still working through the challenges and assessing the full extent of the damage.
We were proud to support the Shires of Corrigin and Bruce Rock in hosting their community events on Friday 18 February. These events were an opportunity to thank volunteers while providing impacted growers and communities with some well earnt down time.
CBH was pleased to assist the Farmers Across Borders convoy, which travelled from Esperance to Corrigin on Saturday afternoon with 15 semi-trailer loads of hay onboard. An additional three trucks arrived from surrounding communities, bringing the total to 18 trucks.
Farmers Across Borders distributed care packages from local Condinup families for those directly impacted by the fires, with touching notes included from the local school children.
Lifeline WA is continuing to provide free phone and web counselling to all grain growers and their communities. To book an appointment contact call (08) 9261 4444 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
