Rural Aid Charity's Buy a Bale campaign continues!

 

In the December LVI News, we promoted the Buy a Bale campaign as per below -

 

 

“The Buy a Bale campaign is part of the charity Rural Aid, to expand services and support to rural communities.  To register for assistance or to donate go to - https://www.buyabale.com.au/ . If you are a farmer and already registered with Buy a Bale and if you would like to receive a ONCE OFF $1500 from Rural Aid towards bill payment - https://www.buyabale.com.au/financial-assistance-application/  “

 

 

Following member feedback, after the Stock & Land’s 20 December article that the Buy a Bale campaign was in liquidation, LVI contacted both PKF, the liquidators handing the winding up process, and the Rural Aid charity to confirm what has happened.

 

 

Rural Aid has confirmed that the charity’s drought relief campaign ‘Buy a Bale’ continues and since 30 August 2018 has delivered over 20,000 tonnes of hay to drought affected farmers. The website is still live, the donation bank details etc. are correct, so donors are still able to access and use the site. Landcare Groups and staff can therefore continue to confidently promote the Buy a Bale campaign to members and the public.

 

 

PKF has clarified that it is The Give Back Campaign that is being liquidated, not the Rural Aid Charity’s drought relief campaign Buy a Bale. We have been informed that PKF is in the process of arranging the sale of The Give Back Campaign’s assets. The Buy a Bale website domain (www.buyabale.com.au) is owned by Rural Aid (as of January 2019)
