After the cancellation of the Wingham Show due to the coronavirus, Cundletown's Dillon Rural produce store wanted to help the Wingham Show Society out with a donation.

The Dillon Rural donation of a large 4x4 metre round lucerne hay bale (valued at $350), has meant that the Wingham Show Society can now use this as a fundraiser.

"Suffering from funds lost from the cancellation, the Show Society is so grateful to be given this opportunity," Wingham Show Society president, Elaine Turner said.

"Our region suffered terribly through the drought and fires last year.

"Dillon Rural didn't hesitate to come on board as major sponsors, in conjunction with the Lions and Rotary clubs, of the drought and fire events being held at community halls.

"They are strong believers in community spirit and generously donate their time and products at these events," Elaine said.

The Wingham Show Society will be coordinating a virtual raffle that will be appearing on their Wingham Show Facebook page.

People will have the opportunity of supporting the Show Society and go in the running to win the Big Bale.
