Locals are being encouraged to help support a farmer’s family by attending a special luncheon on the Gold Coast this month.
The Help a Farmer’s Family event is taking place at the Nerang RSL Club on Friday 23 November, with the community being urged to come and help raise much-needed funds for Aussie farmers doing it tough.
“Australians know the resilient nature of our farmers and how important they are for our economic and environmental contributions to Australia,” Farm Aid said.

“The conditions on the land are extremely difficult and many of our farmers have been overwhelmed by the challenges they face.”
The luncheon will be hosted by veteran author, journalist and television presenter George Negus, who will give an account of his experiences reporting on drought stricken areas around the world and in Australia.
Tickets to the special event are $100 or $950 for a table of 10.
It includes a three course meal and a glass of wine, with all proceeds going directly to farmer relief programs to help struggling farmers in need.
