Truckies deliver help for bushfire affected farms on Kangaroo Island

Two truck drivers from Mount Gambier last week delivered shipping containers and goods for Kangaroo Island farmers.

Ben Holmes of South West Freight in Mt Gambier delivered two donated shipping containers and goods to a potato farm west of Parndana.

Fellow Mt Gambier truckie Matt Winterfield at the same time delivered a load of CCA posts for fencing.

Matt is also a regular visitor to the Island and will be back soon for the KI Sprint races.

The visit was also a chance to catch up with KI resident and photographer Pete Fuller, who used to work for South West Freight.

"I hadn't seen Ben for probably about 20 years and we used his visit for a bit of a catch-up," he said.

The containers also held donated household items, ranging from white goods to fishing rods for KI locals who lost everything.
