Carroll Public School is inviting the local community to come along on Monday and raise money for Aussie Helpers.

The drought fundraiser will be held at the school in David Street from 10.30am-12.30pm, with a gold coin donation for entry.

Students and visitors are asked to dress as a farmer for a gold coin donation, with plenty of activities on offer including a barbecue lunch, arts and crafts stall, cake stall and face painting. Visitors can donate money to a Buy-a-Bale initiative as well.

Principal Beck Dowe said the school community wanted to do something to help those affected by the drought.

“Being part of a rural community and having farms surrounding Carroll and Gunnedah, I think it’s important that we do try and give back to the people that have been helping us out,” she said.

"And I think it’s important for the kids to have awareness of not just what’s going on in our community but the wider community as well.”
