Ladies pampering fundraiser to assist drought-stricken farmers

When Kyra Crow witnessed farmers dealing with the worst drought on record, the Koroit hairdresser organised a fundraiser doing what she knows best.

On Friday August 24 the former farm-girl will host a Ladies Pamper night at her Deta salon, a fundraiser for the country’s drought-stricken farmers.

The event will include an array of female treats including blow-waves, shampoos, nail painting and make-up. all followed by edible goodies from Platters on Point.

All profits from the event will go to Aussie Helpers who distribute funds where needed.

Ms Crow said she had been inundated with donations from businesses since her and her staff first discussed the idea.

“Everyone has been so supportive,” she said. “We’ve already received so many beautiful gifts as prizes and all of the girls are giving up their time to do some pampering on the night.”

Twenty-eight year-old Kyra said her motivation to get involved came from her own rural roots.

“I was brought up on a farm just out of Port Fairy,” she said.

“I was watching a TV series on the drought with my dad and it really hit home that we could be in this situation.

“We’re so lucky where we are and what we have around here.”

The event will be held at Deta Salon in Koroit on August 24 from 5pm.
