"To whom it may concern West Wimmera and South East hay drive for drought affected farmers!
After seeing and reading about our farmers in despair a small group of us have decided we should help them in any way we can -we are asking for local farmers if they could donate some hay, donate some of their time, or donate trucks so we can deliver the hay where it’s needed most!

A convoy will be leaving on December 6th from Lillimur Victoria to help our fellow farmers and maybe give them a little bit of an early Christmas present - we understand that the people of the South East and West Wimmera are cutting their own hay now and starting harvest but anything you can spare would be muchly appreciated.

Deliveries of hay can be made to Tex Willersdorf at 20 Lillimur station Rd Lillimur Victoria - Texs number is 0428931243 or contact Robert on 0460577746 0r we can pick up hay if need be and welcome any assistance you can offer".
