Shoppers can help drought-stricken farmers

DENIS Dack understands the farmer psyche: even when they're doing it tough they still make sure the stock is fed or the crops irrigated before they feed themselves.

It's why he and the Fraser Coast Community Help Group will launch a week-long fundraiser today to put food on the tables of drought-stricken farmers.

The group has set up tables and bales of hay at the Eli Waters Shopping Centre and will be accepting cash donations on behalf of farmers.

Woolworths and IGA are supporting the event and will convert the money to vouchers the farmers can use at their local stores.
