Farmers joining shave-free for calving Rural Support Trust fundraiser

Donations will go to every RST nationwide - Click this link to donate https://givealittle.co.nz/fundraiser/shavefreecalving2017

Published on Thursday, June 08, 2017

“When your first calf of the season is born -you have a good, close, shave, then hang up your razor. When the final cow calves, THEN you can get that beard off.”

This is shave-free for calving, the fundraiser launched by Marlborough farmer Lyndon Campbell last year.

“In 2016 we raised nearly $3000 for the Top of the South Rural Support Trust, and we are very proud of that,” says Lyndon. “However we feel there is much room to grow by getting more farmers involved.”

This year he’s going national and is calling farmers from all over New Zealand to get hairy and scratchy along with him (the blokes, at least) on this facebook page.

And people can sponsor their hairy farming friends by donating to the Rural Support Trust:

ANZ 06 0317 0805560 01 - reference SHAVE FREE

Lyndon has asked for all donations to be split between the 14 Rural Support Trusts all over New Zealand.

“The earthquake that struck Kaikoura in November 2016 caused much damage and we are proud to say that some of the funds we raised were able help families in need in this region.

“This year we want farmers from all over NZ to take on the challenge and simply encourage people to make a donation to the cause.

“After all, The Rural Support Trust is there for farmers all year round and every little bit raised can help them to help us.”
