Kinglake Ranges bushfire appeal

Two of Australia’s major egg producers, Sunny Queen and Kinross Farm, have joined forces in a bid to raise $50,000 for Kinglake volunteer services, including CFA, SES and Community Emergency Response Teams (CERT).

The “Kinglake Ranges Bushfire Appeal” eggs have been sold throughout Victoria to help raise the money, following the 2009 Victorian bushfires.

Situated in Kinglake, Kinglake, Kinross Farm came under intense fire attack on Black Saturday and so appreciated firsthand the value and service provided by CFA, SES, CERT and other organisations the contribute to the community.

Without the volunteer services in the hours, days and months following the fires, much more would have been lost. According to Philip Szepe of Kinross Farm, “they are the backbone of the community, all playing vital roles in delivering essential services in the region,”

Sunny Queen has been working with Kinross Farm for around 10 years and has been determined do what they could to help both Kinross Farm and their local community during the rebuild.

“We are owned by Australian farmers, and can appreciate the hardships that come with living and working in regional areas. The Victorian bushfires affected the entire country, and like many Australians we wanted to do what we could to help,” said Julie Proctor of Sunny Queen.
