A cuppa different ways to give drought support
GLENDON Street Cafe customers are being encouraged to help those affected by the drought.
The Kingaroy cafe launched their March drought fundraiser with various ways for people to get on board.
Cafe owner Dawn Wolski said for the whole month people would be able to support Australian farmers with proceeds from the fundraiser going to rural families through Drought Angels.
"Come in and show support,” she said.
"If they can't give a dollar, why not do it in a different way by enjoying a cookie and a cuppa.”
The $5 Cookie 'n' Cuppa deal will run for the entire month of March, with all proceeds going to Drought Angels.
All of the ingredients needed for the deal have been donated by suppliers to maximise the amount given to The Drought Angels.
"With the drought angels, they are actually giving it straight to the farmer,” Ms Wolski said.
"This organisation doesn't just look after droughts, this organisation looks after fire and flood as well.”
Glendon Street Cafe will hold a Sizzlin' Angel sausage sizzle on March 16 from 7.30am.
"One hundred per cent of the proceeds are going back to drought angels, and everything is being donated by suppliers,” she said.
"The meat, the bread, the onion, the sauces, even the guys cooking it.”
The drinks will also be supplied by Coke and Schweppes.
A special deal will run from March 18-22, giving customers the opportunity to buy an Angel Parma for $17.95.
"A whopping $10 from each parma will be donated to Drought Angels,” she said.
As the South Burnett is a drought-declared area, many residents and businesses are affected by the drought.
"If we don't look after those people what's going to happen to food prices?” Ms Wolski said.
There will also be a tin inside the cafe for any extra donations towards Drought Angels.
Any donations above $2 made towards the group can be tax deductible.
