Congratulations to Leanne Ross and Emerald State High School for organising a big fundraising day for Buy a Bale that raised $4200 for the campaign.
The day involved 10 schools and local businesses including, Emerald SHS, Emerald North SS, Capella SS, Capella SHS, Denison, Comet, Springsure, Anakie, Gindie, and Local Companies, State Representative and the Central Highlands Regional Council. Thank you to Knights Buses who bussed some students in for free with Emerald Coaches discounting the remaining students to Emerald SHS.
The community support was overwhelming with goods and services donated by numerous companies. They may not have broken the records they were hoping to break (High Fives and Freeze Tag) but they came together as a community for the farmers who are struggling within our region. Well done to you all, you should all be very proud.
