Lions, CFA launch ‘Need for Feed’ appeal
From page 1
The Need for Feed campaign
isn’t new, according to Katie, it
has been used to help farming
communities in a variety of ways
since it was founded in 2006.
In December 2006, founder
Graham Cockerell, donated and
delivered one truck load of hay
which was distributed by the
Cowwar Toongabbie Lions Club
to farmers burnt out in their area.
The problem was that it was
only five bales of hay for each
Graham returned to his home
determined to round up others to
help make a difference. Neighbor
Barry Medwin, who lost his own
wife and daughter in the 1983
Ash Wednesday Fires, donated
the next semi load of hay and
Graham’s hot-rodding mate Doug
Hamilton suggested a Bush Fire
Benefit which raised $23.000.
A local newspaper then pub -
lished a story on the events enti-
tled ‘Need for Feed’ and the name
and on-going project was born.
Every year since they’ve railed
and raised funds or neces-
sary goods and services for fire,
drought and flood relief but un-
like the years when truckloads
of hay did the trick, it’s the dairy
farming families themselves that
now need the help.
And you’re help could make all
The latest appeal will soon have
a presence on the http://www.
needforfeed.org/ website but for
the moment, you can leave do-
nated food at the two Wonthaggi
locations – Wonthaggi Newspower
and Wonthaggi National Tiles/
Dollar Curtains, or contact your
local CFA brigade.
