Need for Feed Hay Run 2016Singer Songwriter Steve Eales is no stranger when it comes to contributing his talent to a worthy cause. The ‘Need for Feed’ Disaster Relief is an annual event run by Pakenham Lions Club. Their aim is to deliver hay and other animal feed to drought, flood and bushfire affected farmers. Steve’s involvement started several years ago with charity concerts to raise money for the hay run. This year, however, he wacked the gloves on and carted hay alongside everyone else.

How inspiring to see artists using their profile for positive outcomes and there are many of them who give their time – year in year out!. We also say thanks to all those responsible for making a difference – “Our Unsung Heroes”.

We will be profiling more great work in the coming weeks in the Melbourne Observer. My ‘Country Crossroads’ column returns in a fortnight for its 4th year and the papers 47th year of publication. WOW!. It’s Victoria’s only weekly paper that profiles Country Music. Stay tuned – Rob Foenander
