Every trade made on Wednesday, November 27 through trading platform nabtrade will help Aussie farms in drought.

With Australia currently experiencing one of the most severe droughts on record, nabtrade has pledged to donate all brokerage fees earned on the day to the Burrumbuttock Hay Runners.

“nabtrade is committed to supporting projects and programs that make a difference in our community,” nabtrade general manager Adrian Hanley said.

“Farmers across Australia need our help to keep their livestock alive through one of the worst droughts in living history.

“The team at nabtrade are proud to be backing the amazing work that Burrumbuttock Hay Runners do to support farmers — the backbone of Australia.”

Burrumbuttock Hay Runners founder Brendan Farrell said nabtrade’s donation would be used to by his team to continue ‘mates helping mates’ in a time of need.

“Farmers impacted by drought often struggle to ask for help and due to the financial strain of trying to keep the farm afloat many also battle mental health issues,” Mr Farrell said.

“Our program may only provide temporary relief, but it’s also about showing fellow Australian’s that someone cares about them.”
