Everyone knows that farmers do it pretty tough even at the best of times, but, recently, 100 percent of NSW has been declared in drought, making conditions even harder. But city folk have been quick to lend a hand — Bunnings recently held nationwide sausage sizzles to raise money for the Buy a Bale campaign, and pubs around Sydney have been donating a dollar or two from all parmas sold to the cause. And now, Circular Quay's Custom House Bar is hosting an Aussie BBQ fundraiser in support of the agricultural community.
From 12.30–2.30pm on Wednesday, August 15, the bar's sun-drenched courtyard will be hosting a good ol' barbie, giving you both a delicious lunch and an easy way to chip in a few dollars to a worthy cause. It'll have some fancy sausage options — including the British Cumberland, South African Boerewors, chorizo and chicken — each served on a roll with onion, sauce and bread for five bucks a piece. There will also be beef, lamb or mushroom burgers sizzling away for $10, plus buttery corn on the cob for a gold coin.
With 100 percent of proceeds (that is, all the money you hand over) going directly to Buy a Bale and its drought assistance campaign, you'll be helping the organisation support Australian farmers by delivering hay and other essential items to those who are struggling to provide feed for their cattle. So round up your workmates together and get them outside for a snag on Wednesday — it's meant to be a sunny 24 degrees.
