NTI Ltd, Australia’s specialist transport and logistics insurer, has announced its primary sponsorship of the Burrumbuttock Hay Runners on their journey to Armidale on 23rd January – 26th January 2020.
The partnership with NTI and the Burrumbuttock Hay Runners follows on from the last four years of ongoing support of the initiative.
Founded by Brendan ‘Bumpa’ Farrell in 2014, the Burrumbuttock Hay Runners helps the farming industry by transporting and providing essential resources to drought stricken farmers, across regional New South Wales and Queensland.
The recent bushfire crisis across Australia has made the importance of the run even more prominent. The Burrumbuttock Hay Runners became one of the early responders, acting quickly to pull together a team of volunteers and delivered much needed hay out to farmers in Corryong that were impacted by the fires.
“The team at NTI extend our sincere thanks and would like to congratulate the Burrumbuttock Hay Runners for their quick actions to aid bushfire stricken communities.
“Our relationship with the Hay Runners is one of genuine admiration and heartfelt support. It’s important for NTI to be able to give back to hardworking Australians who dedicate their lives to sustaining agriculture in our unforgiving climate, and support the volunteers who donate their time and resources,” said NTI CEO, Tony Clark.
