Makinex giving back to the drought affected farmers

Over the years Makinex has donated to charities that do great work in our communities, and this year is no different. We felt it was important to support our rural friends that are experiencing a one in hundred year drought putting great pressure on them to deliver the produce we all enjoy.

We decided to support the Country Women’s Association branch in Gunnedah located in Northwest NSW area, as they have been hot hard by the drought.

Her small group of volunteers cooks cakes to sell at a weekly cake stall in town among other things raising money so they can directly offer support back to the local Gunnedah community.

With the money raised by Makinex, the CWA plan to spend the money on food and fuel vouchers, car registrations, school fees, and rural supplies, and helping to pay for chemist and electricity accounts for farmers doing it tough.

Joel Baker and Stuart Reynolds drove to Gunnedah last week to present a cheque and enjoyed the local countryside and freshly baked cakes.
