Buy a Bale Lake Haven

24 Aug 2018

Lake Haven Centre has partnered with Rural Aid Australia, the Buy a Bale campaign as well as Woolworths and Coles Lake Haven to be a collection point for local farmers in need.

Customers who would like to donate can leave non-perishable groceries, pet food or cash at Lake Haven Centre Coles and Wooworths.  Until the end of August Coles will match donations by customers dollar for dollar. Cash donations can also be made at Lake Haven Information Desk, Coles or Woolworths Lake Haven, or directly at the link below.

Mike Cochrane, Centre Manager, Lake Haven Centre said, “We’re bringing the community together for those who are doing it tough, we want to raise $9500 – enough to send a semi-trailer load of hay to our struggling farmers on behalf of Lake Haven Centre.

“We’re kicking off the campaign with a $1000 donation,” he said.

Buy a Bale is a branch of Rural Aid which works to support rural communities across Australia during times of natural disasters, and when our communities need a helping hand.

“Everyone has the opportunity to make a difference with a small contribution. $20 is enough to buy a small bale of hay and food donations can be delivered to the families who are being tested through one of the driest periods our state has ever seen,” Mr Cochrane said.

Noni B team at Lake Haven are also collecting on behalf of another rural charity organisation and will be delivering donations made to their store to the Forbes area on 10 Oct. Spendless Shoes is also accepting donations for Buy a Bale.
