Shout out to all employees within Helloworld Travel Limited who helped raise some $53,000 to support struggling Aussie farmers through the Buy a Bale campaign.

By throwing their weight and wallets behind the cause, Helloworld Travel employees and the group, which matched dollar-for-dollar donations, raised enough money to fund a total of five semi-trailor loads of hay, plus a single trailor and gift cards.

WELL DONE TEAM!

Helloworld Travel Limited’s wholesaler Qantas Holidays further supported Aussie farmers through the worst drought in decades by working with Qantas to provide travellers access to a relief concert held in Tamworth in the way of travel packages and a VIP chartered flight from Sydney .

Passengers were treated to a champagne breakfast in the Qantas business lounge, where Conrad Sewell performed exclusively before boarding the aircraft and seeing big names perform live such as Guy Sebastian…

John Farnham…

and The Veronicas…

The concert and telethon raised over $2m, with the flight itself raising $55,000.

The Buy a Bale campaign is part of the charity Rural Aid, formed to expand services and support to rural communities not only suffering through natural disasters, but communities that need help remaining in existence. Since the first hay drive in September 2013, the program has delivered thousands of bales of hay across Australia.
