Community fundraiser in support of the Stackhouse Family

Community fundraiser in support of the Stackhouse Family

At the Waiareka Sale, Monday 7 July

Federated Farmers and the North Otago community are holding a special fundraising sale to assist Peter and Janine Stackhouse, following the recent brutal attack on their stock.

“This will be held on Monday 7 July 2014 at the Waiareka Sale Yards after their usual morning sale and all proceeds will go to the Stackhouse’s,” says Lyndon Strang, Federated Farmers North Otago Vice-President.

“If people would like to donate ewes or lambs it would be greatly appreciated.

“If this is possible, we’d ask for ewes or lambs to be delivered to the Waiareka sale yards on the morning of the sale (Monday, 7 July).

“If you’d like to donate stock but are unable to deliver them to the sale yards, please contact Greg Ruddenklau to organise a pick up.

“If instead you’d like to give a cash donation to the Stackhouse’s instead of stock, a fundraiser account has been set up by Rural Woman NZ and the details are below.

“Federated Farmers would like to publicly thank PGG Wrightson, Rural Women NZ North Otago and CRT Farmlands for their assistance,” Mr Strang concluded.
