Appeal for hay money

richard Aug 9, 2016 - 9:19am

The Refuge RR near Alexandria has issued an appeal for hay.
The group says: "We are looking to raise funds for our hay costs this year. We have been told by all the hay dealers that because of the spring drought, there is half the amount of hay and it will cost double the price. We are barely able to keep up to our $1,650 weekly for our hay and now with the price rising, it will make it impossible to feed them. Please help now by going to www.refugerr.org/How-to-help and make a donation, plus by doing so you get an instant tax slip. Thank you."
