LITTLE people Annabelle and Lily Doolan have taken it upon themselves to help drought-stricken farmers.

The Tamworth girls made paintings of happy animals to auction on the Facebook page, ‘giving back to a couple of local farmers’.

“We wanted to help the farmers, they need help with food,” nine-year-old Lily said.

“I thought farmers would want to see happy animals, I felt happy because I was helping the farmers.”

The paintings sold for a combined $300 to a family friend, with locals commenting their praise for the girls efforts.

Mum Shannon said the girls have seen their grandfather feeding animals in Manilla.

“I thought it was important because the children can see the affects of the drought and they need to have a little voice,” she said.
