This year, 10% of the funds raised will be donated to Drought Angels. Drought Angels is a small charity run by big hearts. They assist farming families affected by natural disasters including fires, floods and drought Australia wide. They don't view helping our Aussie farmers as a handout, but instead a thank you.

“Thank you for all you do to put the food on our tables because without you we would all go hungry”.

Through direct personal contact with the farmers, Drought Angels has earnt a reputation for providing personalised, heartfelt and discreet assistance. They help those who would not normally reach out but prefer to battle it alone, which can lead to severe depression and in some cases suicide.  One-on-one support aides in ‘breaking down the barriers’ of a proud demographic who quite often have never received a hand up. They can be the first generation of many who have to contemplate walking off the land and selling blood lines which have taken years to build up. These are the people of most concern and often forgotten.

This charity is close to many of our hearts, as many of our peers come from remote and rural backgrounds, whilst others have spent much of their holidays on properties for placement. During these times we have all witnessed, either firsthand or as onlookers, the hardships that Australian farmers face. For more information about Drought Angels visit
