Hot pink grouper raises funds for Aussies doing it tough
August 26, 2015
A southern NSW farm machinery manufacturer is making a bold statement with its 65sqm grouper painted hot pink in support of the McGrath Foundation.
The Wallace family, of Cowra, are fourth generation farmers with more than 20 years experience supplying quality agricultural machinery through their business, Active Metal Services.
The company manufactures Brookfield products and wanted to lend their support to Australians doing it tough.
They are now making their trademark orange Brookfield Omnibin in hot pink for their promotion to support the McGrath Foundation.
The seed and super bin is a highly versatile commodity bin for handling seed and fertiliser at sowing time, stock feed and general grain handling, including delivering to the silos during harvest.
During September and October, a percentage of the sales of all Brookfield’s Omnibin, ChainBar, SuperDrill, Mother Bin, Chaser Bin and Sheep Feeder products will be donated to the McGrath Foundation.
The foundation raises money to fund McGrath Breast Care Nurses in communities right across Australia and to increase breast awareness in young Australians, with a particular emphasis on young women.
As of March 2015, the foundation has placed 102 McGrath Breast Care nurses and has helped support over 33,000 families, ensuring their physical, psychological and basis support needs are met.
The timing of the Brookfield promotion will coincide with the McGrath Foundation’s 10 year anniversary.
The hot pink Omnibin will be on display at the Henty Machinery Field Days on September 22-24.
Visitors to the site can buy a pink wristband or make a donation to the McGrath Foundation via the website www.brookfield.net.au
