NSW Farmers has announced Elders is coming on board to help raise much-needed funds for the NSW Farmers’ Merriwa Sir Ivan Bushfire Appeal.

The company will facilitate the sale of livestock where clients elect to donate proceeds towards the Merriwa Sir Ivan Bushfire Appeal.

Elders would transact the sales through a single designated account, free of our normal selling commission and charges and direct proceeds would go towards the appeal, Elders livestock manager Paul Jameson said.

NSW Farmers’ Merriwa branch chairman Patrick Ryan welcomed the offer.

“Communities affected by the bushfire are doing it tough,” he said.

“The clean-up has begun but the scars will be here for years to come. We have been taken back by the generosity of individuals and businesses digging deep to help fire affected communities.”
