Macleay Hay Run
The Aussie mateship burns bright!
Local Kempsey Businesses West Kempsey Hotel and L-Bo Butchery have joined forces to created Macleay Hay Run and haven't the Macleay community responded.
Josh Ball posted a humble call for help on Facebook to attempt to rally together a truck load of hay to support Aussie Farmer's in desperate need. In a matter of two weeks Kempsey and the Macleay Valley have raised over $50,000 and 500 bales of Hay, along with food and water.
A convoy of 8 trucks travelled to Belltrees, a small community within the Hunter on the weekend with 280 bales of hay and two tonnes of groceries and supplies including drinking water, which was well received by the local Farmers.
