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.
