“Bake biscuits for the bush”.

That’s the call of the Walkaway Country Women’s Association, which wants people in the Mid West to assist drought-hit rural communities in the Murchison, Gascoyne and Pilbara.

The Walkaway CWA has joined forces with the WA Hay Run, which leaves Esperance on the Australia Day weekend, to distribute thousands of bales of hay throughout WA.

Biscuits, baked or bought, will accompany the hay.

“We think it will lift the spirits of people in the drought areas,” Miranda Wooldridge, secretary of the Walkaway CWA, said.

“The Walkaway store is the drop-off point for the biscuits and we will package them there.

“Biscuits can be packed into a container or a tin. And please write a note just saying ‘Hi’.”

Biscuits were needed at the Walkaway store by January 8.
