Lending a helping hand to community projects


There are some fantastic and important rural initiatives out there in our communities. Good Deeds is all about making them happen.

Entries are now being sought from rural community projects that could do with a helping hand.  One lucky project will be awarded $5,000 towards their project and the teams from Rabobank and The Country radio show also get stuck in by providing a day’s labour. It’s a great opportunity to give back to our local communities. 

There are 3 prizes to be won:

1st prize - $5k plus a day’s labour from Rabobank and The Country

2nd prize - $1k plus a day’s labour from the local Rabo team

The Hakataramea Valley is a unique farming region and despite the challenging climate it is renowned for producing quality livestock and produce. The Hakataramea Sustainability Collective wanted to re-create the once popular community area located at the lower end of the Hakataramea River.
