It started as an idea from a friend of hers but Claire Jenkins is well on her way to raising a silo full of money for the Cancer Council as part of the Stars of Dubbo event.
Ms Jenkins is part of a fundraising idea that has been dubbed 'Crops for Cancer' to raise funds ahead of the Stars of Dubbo night next year.
Ms Jenkins explained the concept of Crops for Cancer, which has raised over $6000, started after a friend mentioned the idea to her.
"I ran into Greg Radburn from Tottenham and he shared the idea," she said.
"As each truck comes in the load gets sample gets tested for how it will be graded.
"So he said if you set up a bin when they take the sample they usually put it back into the next truck.
"It's only a small amount but he said instead of putting it in the next truck you throw it into a bin."
Ms Jenkins said the Cancer Council were kind enough to set up a way for the payment to be accepted quickly and efficiently.
"Then it gets set off and weighed and allocated to the Cancer Council's National Grower Register," she said.
"Cass Sullivan from the Cancer Council then markets it in Crop Connect for the money to go to the fundraiser.
"I thought that's a pretty good idea, it's just a small sample coming off each truck."
Ms Jenkins said her fundraiser would not have been possible without several team members from GrainCorp around the region.
"I contacted Stacey Irvine, Adam Cooke, Jackson Baker and Rob Armstrong they were all really supportive with making it work," she said.
"Because it's their staff that actually have to handle it.
"It's their staff who have to empty the bin.
"I really, really appreciate the effort the employees are putting in."
Ms Jenkins also wished to thank her husband who went out of his way to set up the bins across the three GrainCorp sites in Narromine, Trangie and Nevertire.
"I'd also really love to mention my husband, Tim Jenkins who went to three sites and set up the bins," she said.
"They're quite heavy old sheep feeder bins and they're sitting on plastic shuttles.
"They are high enough for the front end loaders.
"It would not have happened without that."
Ms Jenkins will not take all the money for her own fundraiser after acknowledging she will share the funds with another group taking part in the dance.
"Those proceeds from that are being shared with what we call the Warren Boys," she said.
"I just thought at the time this is regional giving so I talked to them and we are splitting the income for that between us."
