The event is to thank the local business community for its continuing support. It will also be an opportunity for past and present staff and clients to mark the 40th anniversary of the award-winning business, which first opened in the Garden City in 1978. As part of the day, some very generous businesses have donated prizes and merchandise towards a multi-draw raffle, with the firm aiming to raise more than $5000 for Rural Aid’s Buy a Bale campaign. Attendees are also encouraged to dress up in country-themed costumes as part of the fundraising.
Robertson Scannell Director Mark Mahony says the event was a great opportunity to help our farmers who have been affected by the drought. “Every day, drought conditions continue to worsen in many areas of Queensland,” Mark said. “We really want this event to be a fun, relaxing day for our local business community, but also hope to increase awareness of the conditions facing our Aussie farmers and raise some funds to assist those who are doing it tough.”
