CWA adds support for Nell's Pantry

Forbes CWA has added its support to local farming families through Nell's Pantry.

The CWA has donated $800 worth of gift cards to the Pantry for families doing it tough as drought conditions continue.

CWA's June Lamb said she hoped families would be able to use the $50 Why Leave Town cards to treat themselves after picking up some groceries at Nell's Pantry.

The Pantry was established by a bequest and is expanding each week with donations.

Farming families are welcome to attend, at St John's Church Hall on Tuesday afternoons, and fill two reusable shopping bags with goods for free.

The CWA representatives hopes their cards will help some families go out for coffee and cake to unwind, or maybe buy something extra in town.

The Pantry's Sue Jolliffe said the Pantry was incredibly grateful for all the donations that have come in.
