Keeping the dream alive with the Burrumbuttock Hay Runners

It’s that time of the year again when wonderful Australian volunteers rally together to help deliver donated hay to Aussie farmers in drought-affected areas. It is the motto of The Burrumbuttock Hay Runners of ‘keeping the dream alive’ and doing what it takes to keep the dream alive for Australian farmers.  

The Burrumbuttock Hay Runners is a group founded by Brendan ‘Bumpa’ Farrell. Each year volunteers prepare months ahead for their journey from Darling Point NSW to Quilpie in Queensland. This show of solidarity is in true Australian spirit of helping out a mate, as the number of our farmers suffering from drought related stress has climbed. A large scale of QLD is currently ‘drought declared’ and it has a great impact on not only the farmers and their health, but to the businesses and schools within the local community.

Currently running its 14th journey, the run has grown with followers, volunteers and public support making it one of the most anticipated charity runs in Australia.

The success of the run has helped to fill depots in South Australia, Echuca, Horsham as well as Burrumbuttock, with donated hay. This year see’s the trucks being loaded with bales of hay, dog food, fodder for stock, pantry essentials, toiletries and other household items. As well as semi-trailers that are transporting more than $10,000 worth of toys for children in outback communities. This is all thanks to the generosity of local business and community groups all around Australia.

A cause like this is a great example of creating your very own custom made stubby holders to raise funds for those that need support. With the wide range of colours, images and designs you can choose to have on them, they are the perfect way to celebrate and raise funds for any event. My Stubby are proud to show our support to The Burrumbuttock Hay Runners by providing the events official custom stubby holder merchandise. We know our farmers work hard and tirelessly and we look forward to having a drink in our stubby holders to celebrate them. All funds raised from each custom stubby holder sale will go towards fuel for the trucks in the hay run.
