Community raises thousands for farmers

THE Wondai community has come together to support and raise funds in aid of the farmers drought appeal.

The Wondai Bowls Club hosted a social night of bowls on Friday, which saw 78 people on the green to raise $3000 for the cause.

Secretary of the club, Evan O'Rourke said the club was proud to play their part and support the farmers.

He spearheaded the fundraiser and was thankful to all the helpers and many sponsors who supported the night.

"The $3000 will be passed on to the Murgon Rotary Club for distribution to farmers where many are reaching dire straits through the prolonged drought which still shows no sign of breaking,” he said.
