Orange Anglican Grammar School hosts barbecue fundraiser for farmers | Photos

High school students from Orange Anglican Grammar School raised money for drought stricken farmers on Friday.

The students ran a raffle and barbecue at the school during their lunch break.

Co-ordinated by Orange Anglican Grammar School agriculture teacher Leanne Ferguson, they also appealed to parents and members of the community for donations of items for the raffle.

All proceeds from the school’s fundraiser will go to Burrumbuttock Hay Runners, an organisation that takes donated stock feed and delivers it to farmers in need.

The estimated cost was $2000 to get a truck to bring feed from Victoria to western NSW and Queensland.

The hay runners will deliver the hay free-of-charge with all money raised by the secondary school students going to the drought cause.
