Banding together to support our farmers

With 100% of NSW in drought, staff across the Transport cluster have banded together to throw their support behind our farmers. From morning teas to BBQs and even pizza days, teams have been busy raising thousands of dollars.

Here’s just some of the great ways that teams across the Transport cluster have been lending a hand …

Snagging our customers’ support: The NSW TrainLink crew at Lithgow Station used Rail Safety Week as an opportunity to hold a fundraising sausage sizzle. Snags quickly flew out the door and the crew raised $1,000 for Toorahweenah Drought Relief.

The great Wagga Wagga bake-off: Another NSW TrainLink crew at Wagga Wagga Station held a bake sale to raise money for the Burrumbuttock Hay Runner charity day and received over $1,000 of donations that will purchase hay for drought-affected farmers.

Pizza party for a cause: The Compliance Adjudication team from Roads and Maritime held a pizza day, which raised a total of $1,140 for farmers, while the Roads and Maritime Newcastle office also raised $2,500 through holding a team morning tea.

R U Aware We Care: Gunnedah, Tamworth, Armidale and Narrabri Stations are currently acting as drop off points for a range of household goods, which the Salvation Army will distribute to farmers throughout the North West as a part of the ‘R U Aware We Care’ campaign running across the region.

Going, going, gone: Karen Neader, NSW TrainLink Customer Service Attendant at Gunnedah, attended a recent drought relief fundraiser where a NSW TrainLink voucher was auctioned off to raise funds. Overall the night raised an impressive $52,000 for our farmers!

With stations, depots and offices spread right across NSW, we know this issue hits close to home for many of our people. So well done to everyone for their efforts!

If you have a great story about your fundraising efforts, we’d love to hear it. Simply send it through to staffinfo@transport.nsw.gov.au(External link).
