Hunter corporates unite to help out Hunter farmers

Back

 

We've teamed up with Hunter corporates to deliver drought relief for farmers in the Upper Hunter.  

We've joined forces with six other Hunter corporates to commit a total of $112,500 in funding to Upper Hunter farming communities affected by drought.

Led by NFP Connect, we came together with Beyond Bank Australia Foundation, Glencore Coal Assets Australia, Greater Charitable Foundation, Hunter Water, Port Waratah Coal Services and Sparke Helmore Lawyers to help our local farming community and deliver long-term impacts.

With over 80% of NSW still in drought, statistics say it takes nearly three years to recover from a drought.

As a result, the funding will be allocated to provide the most beneficial support and emergency relief to farmers during this time, with more information on how the funds will be allocated in the coming months.
