Please Help Our Charity by Ordering From Aussie Farmers

The Aussie Farmers Direct fundraising program offers a healthy fundraising alternative for groups. It's a simple way to raise funds for your group! This is how it works in a nutshell ... 2% of mum and dad’s weekly grocery shop with AFD can be donated back to a registered fundraising effort. These funds are distributed twice a year. Your school/club/group get 2 x cash injections to spend on whatever they like. Anyone who orders will help The Friends of Sammy Joe Foundation. The aim is to have a standing order that you will receive on a weekly basis containing Milk & Bread products or our Fruit & Veg, with free delivery straight to your door step.     Contact Marie & Marco at Aussie Farmers - tel: 0425 701 290 or click here to visit the Aussie Farmers Direct web site
Thank you so much for your support.
