Redevelopment cooks up a storm for drought relief

BBQ attendees give a big 'thumbs up'

The Westmead Redevelopment team held a BBQ last Thursday (August 30) to raise much-needed funds for NSW farmers.

Members of the integrated project team, including staff from the redevelopment, The Children’s Hospital at Westmead and PWC, gathered for a yummy BBQ lunch, kindly donated by the FFE Group.

The team raised nearly $500 for the drought relief – and were thrilled to get behind the campaign.

The project’s director of communications and engagement Emma Spillett said everyone had dug deep to help the farmers.

“It was fantastic to see everyone really getting behind the drought relief fund and throwing in money to help our farmers,” she said.

“With large areas of the state experiencing dry or drought conditions and some people reporting their lowest rainfalls in more than 60 years, it’s never been more important to help our farmers in their efforts to maintain their farm and provide for their families.

“As a project team, we really pride ourselves on supporting state, national and international relief funds and doing our bit to help others.”

All proceeds from the BBQ will be donated to the NSW Farmers Drought Relief Fund.
