The Hotel Grosvenor aims to raise $2000 for farmers who are struggling with drought.
Owners of the Hotel Grosvenor Andrew and Sophie Hill kick started the fundraiser at the popular pub by chipping in $200 and the Grosvenor Hotel Social Club has matched that donation by adding another $200.
Mr Hill grew up on 4000 acres of farming and grazing land near Meningie and is passionate about the man on the land.
“I love rural communities and being an ex-farmer it hurts to see what some of the country’s farmers are going through due to the lack of rain,” Mr Hill said.
On Saturday, August 25 the Goolwa Regatta Yacht Club will conduct the annual Dauntless Cup.
After the race the club is throwing its support behind the drought crisis facing the country’s farmers and will run a Parma for a Farmer event with monies raised going to the drought relief fund, www.buyabale.com.au
For $25 there will be a Snitzel Parma and a Coopers beer to be enjoyed. It is advised to book, as there will be four sittings from 6pm.
There will be raffles with prizes including a trailer load of firewood, fresh produce, mega chocolate packs and more.
Everyone is welcome to enjoy country songs around the campfire, toast marshmallows and sip mulled wine
