Logan police round up hampers to help farmers

LOGAN police put out a district wide call for officers and support staff to help drought affected Queensland farmers. Cartons of goodies headed west. Now the letters of thanks are flowing in.

Senior Constable Luke Turner said a call went out over the radio waves to roundup food and supplies for friends and fellow Queenslanders who were doing it tough.

“Carton after carton of necessities were delivered, packaged and transported to farmers and families in need,” he said.

He said some heartwarming responses had been received by recipients.

They included one from Warwick farmers: “It really touched our hearts that you have one of the toughest beats in Queensland took time to reach out to us farmers.”

And another: “Your generosity has restored to us country folk, that you city folk do care.”
