Money raised for drought-stricken farmers
The Rotary Club of Woy Woy has raised more than $4100 for drought-stricken farmers.
Its members have been seeking donations on the streets and at supermarkets fundraising.
They've covered the Peninsula and travelled as far afield as Erina.
They are hoping that the money will go some way in helping the farmers overcome the lack of feed for their livestock.
One of the successful events was a sausage sizzle outside the Bourke St General Store at Ettalong on Saturday, September 1.
Woy Woy South Public School has also held a Farmers' Friends donation drive.
More than $1000 was raised.
"It was fantastic to see so many Woy Woy South students support the Farmers Friends donation drive in August," said principal Mr Matt Barr.
"Students got to dress up as farmers and they all looked amazing.
"Currently our school has raised $1366.75 for our struggling farmers, along with a few car loads of non-perishable goods."
