Dick Smith and Ian MacNamara ( Macca )fly in to visit Aussie Helpers in Charleville.
On the first day of March Dick Smith and Macca from Australia all Over flew into Charleville from Sydney enroute to Mornington Island. Dick Smith Foods donated one million dollars to Aussie Helpers last December and Dick decided to stop over in Charleville and have lunch with Brian and Nerida Egan, founders of Aussie Helpers, and to meet some of the volunteers who freely give their time and expertise to help our primary producers going through tough times in the drought
Dick and Macca were shown how Aussie Helpers operate, visiting the volunteer quarters and storage yard and the warehouse where product is distributed all over this state and NSW as well as inspecting our office.
The visit was concluded with a luncheon at The Rocks where Julian and Wendy provided a magnificent lunch for thirteen people.
Macca recorded many interviews with all attending which will be played this Sunday on his radio show
Brian Egan said that Dick and Macca were very impressed with the amazing work that Aussie Helpers do in the bush.
