The call has gone out to truck drivers amid a huge donated hay relief operation.
The Buy A Bale Hunter campaign – a partnership between the Mercury, Newcastle Herald, Dungog Chronicle, Scone Advocate, Hunter Valley News and charity Rural Aid is looking for more truck drivers to help transport hay to Upper Hunter farmers experiencing the worst drought in living memory.
There are 100 loads of hay planned over the next three to four weeks and while there are some truck drivers on board, more are needed.

Five truck loads of hay will arrive in the Upper Hunter this week alone.
Truck drivers will be paid to transport the hay from the NSW/Victorian border to the Hunter.
Truck drivers are busy people and we’re trying to get some more trucks on the road – we picked up another driver this morning, so if there are more drivers out there who can help please get in touch,
Rural Aid CEO Charles Alder said.
