Parma for a Farmer Special in Newcastle!

Wests join local pubs and clubs across Australia in the campaign to give support to rural communities suffering through possibly the worst drought in Australian history.

Wests are asking Novocastrians to join them in the plight to be the group that raises the most money nationally for the newly launched drought aid campaign Parma for a Farmer. After all Newcastle is the home of the Schnitzel, right?

The Wests Group Newcastle have joined hundreds of pubs and clubs across Australia in the campaign to give support to rural communities suffering through possibly the worst drought in Australian history.

An extension of the Buy a Bale program that evolved from a humble hay bale drive initiated by Charles and Tracey Alder in September 2013 and which has since delivered more than 160,000 bales of charitable hay across 4 states, Parma for a Farmer is an exciting new initiative just launched this week nationally. Parma for a Farmer requires that participating outlets donate $1 from every Parma sold during the campaign.

The Wests Group Newcastle together with schnitzel supplier Red Funnel have doubled their money and together pledged $2 from each Parma sold throughout the entire Wests Group for the next month.

“We’re asking the people of Newcastle to support us in supporting this much needed cause by ordering our special “Parma for a Farmer” available at all Wests Clubs over the next 4 weeks. It’s our mission to give a very hefty donation to this terrific cause, and we’re calling on you for your support.” Comments Wests Group Australia CEO, Philip Gardner.

Parma for a Farmer Special

Chicken schnitzel, shaved ham, napolitana sauce, shredded cheese, served with chips and salad.

$12.50 for members and $14.00 for guests.

Available for lunch and dinner, 7 days a week at Wests City, Wests New Lambton, Wests Mayfield, Wests Cardiff and Wests Nelson Bay.

$2 from every Parma ordered between Monday 13 August and Sunday 9 September 2018 will be donated directly to Buy A Bale.

The more Parmas that Newcastle eats the greater donation the Wests Group and Red Funnel will provide to the drought-stricken community.

The Wests Group have also announced that they will be donating a semi-trailer load of hay to Buy a Bale ahead of the Parma for a Famer campaign, valued at $9,500.

  1. Buy A Bale does not list a split of what percentage of donations actually go to farmers, to the workers at Buy A Bale or to the CEO (think the Shane Warne Foundation scandal) – can you find this out for us NewcastleLive!? I only donate when I know my donation fully goes to the recipient cause, accountability often gets lost in these really really important campaigns and requires means of support. There is a FAQ page on the BAB website but there are no questions/answers on that page. Not convinced sadly.
