CWA supports Australia Day Hay Run for Drought Affected Farmers in WA
CWA of WA was proud to support the Farmers Across Borders Australia Day Hay Run which ran feed from Esperance to drought affected farmers in the Mid West. A convoy of 20 trucks carrying more than 2,000 bales of hay made a 1,200-kilometre journey to Meekatharra.  The feed was shared among 60 different stations in the Murchison, Gascoyne and Goldfields regions.  Our generous members and branches including CWA Walkaway Branch, worked tirelessly to put together biscuits to add a special something to give to drought affected farmers along the run.  The Association is pleased to have been able to donate $5000 from its Sir James Mitchell Education and Welfare Fund to help fuel the trucks on their long journey.
