Brisbane Produce Markets team with 4BC to help farmers

The Brisbane Produce market is working with 4BC to help drought stricken areas of north western Queensland. The markets have collected 40 tonne of fruit, vegetables and Lucerne to send to the drought affected areas.

4BC spoke with Lindsay Transport which has given a B Double truck to take the stock to Charleville, stopping off at Gatton on the way to collect more and reaching Charleville’s volunteer brigade over the weekend.

The produce will be distributed to more than 400 drought stricken farmers in the Charleville area, with farmers making the pilgrimage to town to collect the much appreciated goods and enjoy a free barbequem, supported by XXXX. Lindsay Transport truck driver Cornelius Sniecks was happy to donate his time to move the stock.

David Pursehouse and Tony Joseph from the Brisbane Markets told 4BC they are “overwhelmed with the support with produce being donated from local wholesalers, the Riverina Districts in New South Wales, Andrew Jackwitz from Gatton and Dicky Bill from Stanthorpe.”

4BC’s PR Director Donna Lynch was hand at the markets at Rocklea to support getting the truck loaded and see it on its way.
