THEY’RE more accustomed to selling houses than sizzling snags but that didn’t stop a group of local real estate agents from raising money for our farmers at the weekend.
Staff from PRD Nationwide’s Tamworth office braved the Peel St chill on Saturday for the barbecue fundraiser.
The event, which called on passers-by to make a gold-coin donation for a sausage sandwich, raised close to $1000 for NSW Farmers’ “We’re for the Bush” drought appeal.
The money will be dispersed by the Salvation Army as food and other vouchers for drought-hit farmers in the region.
The fundraiser was held in conjunction with PRD’s Sell Smarter Win A Car campaign, which will see one lucky customer win a Holden Barina from Kensell’s simply by listing their property with the agency by the end of June.
“The drought appeal is a cause pretty close to the hearts of a lot of our staff,” event co-organiser Emma Roberts said.
