Widespread flooding in southeast Queensland and northern New South Wales has prompted many businesses to think about what they can do to help.
That’s why FarmFest field day organisers, ACM Rural Events, have teamed up with Lloyds Auctions and 20 rural businesses to hold an auction and raise much-needed funds for Rural Aid.
During field days, people can watch an auctioneer auction off assets live from the Lloyds Auctions site.
To be won, an action camera, advertising space in Queensland country lifea mobile solar-powered irrigator and much more.
All proceeds will go to Rural Aid, helping to support rural communities and farmers affected by the floods.
Bids will be called for each item, and sold to the highest bidder by the auctioneer, whether on site or competing from home online. It can be completed online at www.lloydsauctions.com.au under the FarmFest auction thumbnail.
Bidding began online on May 19 – with the live auction taking place on the Lloyds Auctions site (D/18) on Wednesday June 8 at 11am.
There’s no reserve – so buyers can bid on a bargain like the greenPRO solar-powered travel irrigator, Marchant Engineering picket post driver, set of four Maxxis tires, Elite Motor helmets Shark ATV Drak cycles, a Quik Spray QR50 remote control reel, a 250 liter Fuchs engine, tractor transmission oil or engine fluid.
