Another community group has chipped in to help struggling Glen Innes farmers, with Quota and the Caledonian Society donating thousands to fight the drought.
Counsellor Stuart Brummell said the Rural Financial Service has donated some $35,000 to local farmers.
Doled out in credit cards worth $250, $500 or $900, the money has gone a long way for local farmers, he said.
"It's been welcomely received by all those who received them for sure," he said.
The Rural Financial counselling service, a Federal government service with over 6,600 clients, was called on to distribute some of the multi-millions of donations granted in appeals in 2018. The charity role was a first for the organisation.
The latest donation, by the Caledonian society and Quota, includes another $1300 to keep local farmers going. With an extra injection of cash from Quota September last year, plus the latest donation, Mr Brummell hopes to be able to help more families.
He said the charity role was a rewarding one.
Judi Toms had the pleasure of handing over the cheque at the end of last year.
"The sad part of it is is that it's still ongoing, but it's also uplifting to both organisations but to locals that we can do something locally for locals, and that's been a focus for a lot of local fundraising that they want to know it stays locally."
