Cornetts Supermarkets are looking forward to handing over a generous donation to the Drought Angels Natasha Johnston (Drought Angels co-founder) and Jennifer Gailey.
The Drought Angels fundraising organisation started in 2014 with the vision to ensure the Australian agricultural industry is sustainable and thriving for the benefit of everyone. The team at Cornetts Supermarkets support this vision.
Cornetts strongly believes in supporting our farmers through both purchasing locally wherever possible, and also supporting them now via Drought Angels. “We know how much the farmers have been affected over many years of drought so we started fundraising to help the Drought Angels do what they do best,” said Mr Graham Booysen, Chief Executive Office of Cornetts Supermarket.
“Cornetts believes that farmers are the backbone of our country and we always support farmers by buying locally, but right now they need more than that and we are so proud to give back to our rural friends”, said Mr Booysen.
“We truly believe in locals supporting locals, and we are local to this community so to be able to give back to the region that supports us is something we are very fortunate to be able to do,” said Mr Booysen.
“Our farmers need everyone to buy local, buy Queensland or Australian grown and produced, because every bit helps go back to those on the land and will create healthy, vibrant communities.”
Cornetts CEO Graham Booysen said “We believe that a good supermarket is an integral part of a small town and supporting farmers will support many regional towns throughout Queensland. Cornetts pride themselves on getting involved in local communities.”
Cornetts Supermarkets CEO Graham Booysen will be presenting a cheque for $52,000 to Jennifer Gailey and Natasha Johnston at 11am on Tuesday 19 May at the Cornetts Supermarkets Oakey Store at 161 Bridge Street, Oakey.
