AS the drought drags on across the Central Tablelands, the village of Tarana, east of Bathurst, is preparing to fight back.
A fundraiser will be held this Saturday, September 15 to raise money to help the Tarana community and surrounding communities suffering through the big dry.
The Tarana Fight For Farmers fundraiser from noon to midnight at the Tarana Hotel will feature a jumbo raffle, live auction, face-painting, a haircut or shave station and live music, among other activities.
All the money raised on the day will go to the Tarana Fight For Farmers not-for-profit charity to assist in financial aid, help with goods and services needed and ongoing support.
Lifeline will also be attending on the day to offer assistance to those who need it.
“We want to encourage friends and families to attend this great family day, not only to raise funds but to bring the community together at a time when many are doing it tough,” spokeswoman Victoria Bewley said.
“We want them to be able to enjoy themselves and the great entertainment we have on offer.”
The Tarana Hotel will donate 100 per cent of the net profit made on the day to the charity.
