The local 200 Bales campaign received a boost from a somewhat unexpected place.
In late November Rosebank College (a co-ed Catholic high school at Five Dock in Sydney), raised $7,000 for the Mid-Western Region to help the drought affected area and community.
The school was able to collect this money from the students wearing mufti for a day and the students and staff entering into a lip sync battle.
The money raised has been donated to 200 Bales.
Which continues the musical support of the campaign along with the recent A Day in the Dirt concert, that saw nearly 1000 enthusiastic punters head to the Mudgee Showground for the fundraising event.
