Extract from letter written to District re donation for drought relief.
We wish to extend our appreciation for the very generous $3,000 funding gifted by the Rotary District 9670 for drought affected communities.  We are extremely grateful for this support which will be a big help.
 

 
Please follow LINK HERE for a more detailed story of before and after some rain had fallen.

 
Our area has been in drought since the end of 2017 with our annual rainfall for 2018 being 156mm and so far for 2019 we’ve received 72mm in three rain events. In mid-January 2019 we destocked 90% of our sheep as we could no longer afford or justify the purchase and transport costs, as much of it was coming from interstate.
 
Our heartfelt thanks to all those involved in this very worthwhile project. Your thoughtfulness and compassion means a great deal to us.
 
 
Take care and kind regards,
 
Ann & John Crossing
