Hay Mate: A Bush Christmas Appeal
This festive season, Hay Mate - A Bush Christmas Appeal is bringing together a cast of Aussie entertainers to raise important funds for Rural Aid.
Hay Mate: A Bush Christmas Appeal will take place at Mornington Racecourse on Sunday December 15, featuring Farnham, Jon Stevens, Daryl Braithwaite, Vanessa Amorosi, The Black Sorrows with Vika and Linda Bull, Russell Morris, John Williamson, Tim Wheatley, All Our Exes Live in Texas and Little Georgia.
Tickets for the event will be $119 and go on sale Friday November 1 at 9am from Ticketmaster. It will also be screened on Channel 9 from 8pm.
For Farnham, being a part of Hay Mate is an important thing to do. "Farmers are the backbone of this country," he says. "I understand what they are going through. They are doing it tough through this drought. Not only do we want to help out, we want to show them that they have our support."
All profits raised from the massive Sunday event will go to Rural Aid's Buy A Bale campaign. Rural Aid is one of the leading rural charities in Australia and have been championing the cause of farmers doing it tough.
The Buy A Bale program supports farmers and rural communities throughout Australia, delivering hay and other essential items for those who have no feed left for their livestock.
"The Hay Mate: Buy A Bale program has so far distributed over $3-million worth of fodder to farmers around Australia. But, with the worsening drought and the need for a lot more, the commitment has been made to distribute more through the funds that will be raised at the Hay Mate concert," Rural Aid chief executive officer Charles Adler says.
Organiser Glenn Wheatley, who is one of the driving forces behind the Hay Mate - A Bush Christmas Appeal For Our Aussie Farmers says the success of the event is about everyone coming together for a united cause. "There are times when we need to stand together to support those in need, and our farmers are doing it tough," he says.
Why not celebrate Christmas early in 2019?
