Drought Angels take flight... to Sydney

THE Drought Angels have - quite literally - soared, after taking off for a weekend full of media attention in Sydney.

Drought Angels Tash and Steele Johnston and Jenny Gailey flew out of Brisbane on Friday afternoon ready for a number of TV appearances starting today.

The Angels explained the weekend was a chance to raise awareness for farmers doing it tough, with one of the weekend's highlights to be a "Dollars for Dust” fundraiser tonight.

"It's fun, it's exciting, I think this could be the start of something really, really big for Drought Angels, and I can't wait to find out what it is,” Mrs Gailey said.

"It's the anticipation of Saturday night, the whole meeting and greeting with people, and I'm just really excited to be here.”

The media attention comes after the Drought Angels were flooded with enquiries during the past few weeks, as drought continues to devastate primary producers across the country.

The Chinchilla News is following the Drought Angels' journey and will bring updates throughout the weekend.
