Þ Drought
1. How can we help?
White Cliffs is gearing up to help its neighbours as we watch our land and its animals suffer. Station people are resilient and capable but everyone needs a bit of help when things are tough. We are offering practical assistance in small ways, having an event, a bit of fund raising and generally looking after the neighbours who are nearby.
Some of the practical tasks that we have been asked to undertake include pruning, cleaning shearers’ quarters, welding, ironing, & setting up mobile sheep yards.
If you would like to give practical help or have any ideas for a planned day for a neighbourly get together with information, support, food & fun please contact whatsonatwhitecliffs@gmail.com
If you would like to donate you can send money to
