Long dry seasons means no income for some of our farmers.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Imagine having to buy some basic grocery items and realising that you have no money. This is the situation that a lot of farmers of Western Queeensland are in. No rain has meant that their income has stopped. While we have had some rain recently, even if a grain farmer planted a crop now, they would have to wait until the crop was ready for harvest before they had any income. If a grazier was to have calves or lambs  drop now, they would have to wait 18 months before they would be ready for sale.   Please help them buy buying some of the basics during your next grocery shop and dropping them off at Absolute Batteries Toowoomba.

Please, help us help them.

Queensland’s drought. Help needed.

Drought declarations (Department of Agriculture and Fisheries)

As reviewed on 27 September 2017, there are a total of 31 councils and 3 part council areas drought declared, with 67 Individually Droughted Properties in a further 11 council areas.

 

No rain means no grass, crops don’t grow and the farmers income stops. Things are getting quite dire in some areas. With no income coming in, some people on the land are going without for some of the basic necessities like food and toiletries. Absolute Batteries Toowoomba wants to help our mates out west, so we have established a drop off point for donations. If you would like to help our fellow Queenslanders so they can keep battling on, bring in non-perishable food, toiletries, soap and other cleaning products.

If you would like to help, you can drop off your donations at our shop which is located at 61 Clifford Street.
