Gold for Gunnedah Week – 2nd to 8th September 2018

Did you know that Lane Cove’s sister city is Gunnedah?  As this drought continues to cripple NSW, Lane Cove is to stage a week of drought relief help.  Gunnedah became Lane Cove’s Sister City after the last drought when Lane Cove helped the people of Gunnedah.  Lane Cove Mayor Pam Palmer has met with the Mayor of Gunnedah and told him that Lane Cove would help out. This idea started with Lane Cove Councillor Andrew Zbik who is married to former Gunnedah resident Bronwyn Deane.

Gold for Gunnedah is a simple proposition if everyone in Lane Cove donated a $2.00 gold coin we could raise $77 564.  

How Will the Money Benefit Gunnedah?

Lane Cove Rotary has been working with Rotary Gunnedah to establish a collection point. Gunnedah Rotary will disperse the money throughout their community by way of vouchers to local food stores, Bunnings and other local retailers.  Money will also be donated to  Feed A Farmer (who is working with Aussie Helpers in Gunnedah). Monies raised are to provide assistance and/or relief to Gunnedah farmers and residents impacted by the drought. Find out more here.
