FLANNELETTE Friday’s have become a huge hit at South Tamworth Coles.

Staff have been busy fundraising for the Country Women’s Association drought appeal.

“We dress in farm gear, do a gold coin donation and my second-in-charge cooks everyone breakfast,” South Tamworth Coles manager Brock Mackay said.

“I personally know a lot of farmers, we’re all locals so we were more than happy to help.

“It all starts at the front, all those guys are very engaged in it all and it’s just a conversation.”
