Members of South-West Sydney’s Probus Club of Narellan visited Broken Hill and the Far West, and two of their own, Linda Lord and Jeanette Jackson, decided to do something for the pastoralists in dire need of water.

They proposed to the Probus Club that a collection be taken up and vouchers be purchased to be distributed to families so they can spend it how they wish, in hope of helping out a little bit.

The generosity of the club was unanticipated and the end result was a total of $1650 raised.

They then used the money for the procurement of Far West Proud Gift Cards, which will be distributed by the Pastoralists’ Association of West Darling.

During a barbecue lunch held at the Sulphide Street Railway and Historical Museum, Linda and Jeanette presented 33 vouchers to Sue Andrews of the Pastoralists’ Association.

Sue was brought to tears and said how thankful she was, and she was certain the pastoralists would be, too.

When presenting the vouchers Linda said: “Please let the pastoralists know that as city people, we are aware and we do care.”
