Bussies for Bales!

Aug 7, 2018Uncategorized

Checkout the great fundraiser that our members in Newcastle are getting involved in.

The Bussies for Bales fundraiser is an initiative started by a Newcastle bus driver, John Wagner to assist our drought affected farmers around the state. The donations will go towards purchasing bales of hay to feed the starving animals.

Chris Preston, RTBU NSW Bus and Tram Division Secretary said “It’s fantastic to see our members getting active and supporting this worthy cause. Our farmers are in desperate need of help.”

“Congratulations to all involved, with a special congrats to our Belmont RTBU delegate Robin O’Donoghue for organising donations.”

Newcastle bus depots have been raising money for their local farmers in the Upper Hunter region. The donations being collected at depots by the Bussies for Bales organisers are being directed to Rural Aid “Buy a Bale” campaign to purchase the bales for the farmers.

We encourage all members across the state to be a part of this great fundraising initiative “Bussies for Bales” and donate to our farmers in need. The best way to donate is by clicking this unique link for the Bussies for Bales initiative which will track how much money we raise!
