Rural Business Tasmania has launched its Rural Relief Fund to raise funds to support farming families in times of need.
Farmers are resilient, but they are at the mercy of the elements and markets. Rural Business Tasmania can act quickly to support those families most affected and in immediate need, by helping them to meet their personal requirements, which are often outside the scope of larger Government relief programs.
There is lot of competition for the charity dollar, but the Rural Relief Fund is all about helping those in need, which is a long established trademark in rural communities
