Head to the Wesley Uniting Church in Anson Street on Saturday for a feed and the chance to help out drought-stricken farmers.

The church is putting on a barbecue and devonshire tea morning with all proceeds going to the church’s Moderator’s Drought Appeal which is raising funds statewide for farmers.

Retired Reverend Betty Stroud said the money would be used to buy pre-loaded debit cards to give to farmers.

“It will go to the people on farms to help with their everyday needs rather than providing hay or anything like that,” she said.

The cards will up to the value of $200 for farmers to buy goods.

She said the appeal had already handed out $90,000 to farmers and would be ongoing.

The church’s event is on from 9am-1pm.
