Charlotte's Drought Journey
Just over a year ago, Charlotte then aged 4 collected a bucket of rain and told her family that she wanted to help the Aussie Farmers and their families affected by the drought. Luckily Charlotte’s family listened and fast forward a year and ‘Charlotte’s Drought Journey’ is in full force and has had a monumental impact on affected Farmers and their families.
United Petroleum in conjunction with the C3 Church City Darlinghurst appeal have donated 30 United cards valued at a total of $15,000 to disadvantaged farmers, redeemable only at the United Petroleum Service station 2-8 Maffra Sale Road, Sale.
A representative of ‘Charlottes Drought Journey’ provided United Petroleum and C3 City Church with the names of the farmers in the greatest need of support during these difficult times. The United Petroleum Gift cards valued at $500 each may be redeemed for petrol, diesel or grocery purchases from the United Petroleum Sale site.
“United petroleum are delighted to provide the much needed support to the Gippsland farming community in conjunction with C3 Church City Darlinghurst” said Gary Brinkworth, CEO of United Petroleum.
A function was held for the farmers and their families by ‘Charlottes Drought Journey’ and Heyfield Lions Club at “Barooma” on the 13th July, where the United cards were presented to 30 qualified recipients by a representative of C3 City Church and our very own Mark Waters. The function was a wonderful opportunity to connect with the community and hear the moving stories of the drought affected farmers of Gippsland, Vic.
Charlotte and her families kindness and generosity reminds us that one person can make a difference, especially when supported by the community!
