Residents of RFBI Kurri Kurri Masonic Village have been particularly moved by the difficulties farmers in their area are facing and together with staff, are collecting donations of food and money to give to local farmers. On Wednesday 5 September they will also be holding a ‘Buy a Bale Barn Dance’ to raise money for the Rural Aid’s ‘Buy a Bale’ campaign.

“At our Residents and Representatives meeting in August, our residents said they wanted to do something to help farmers in our area” commented Pam Badior, General Manager, RFBI Kurri Kurri Masonic Village.

“They came up with a plan to collect donations of tinned food and to hold a Barn Dance fundraiser to raise money for their local farmers.”

“The Buy a Bale Barn Dance is shaping up to be a fantastic event and we are all looking forward to it.”

On Wednesday 22 August, RFBI presented Tracy Alder, Co-Founder of Rural Aid Australia with a cheque for $100,000.

“RFBI has been helping people in need for 138 years and I hope our donation will take a bit of the load off farmers in our communities and remind them of the support they have around them.” said David Adams, RFBI Chairman.

The ceremony was held at RFBI Dubbo Masonic Village, in front of residents, families and staff.
