Change of venue for Farmy Army hampers

9:22 am on 16 December 2011

Heavy rain in Christchurch has forced a change of venue for the Farmy Army, packing Christmas food hampers on Friday morning.

The Federated Farmers earthquake volunteer team are holding their final operation and volunteers were asked to gather in New Brighton at 10.30am.

However, bad weather has forced organisers to shift to the PGG Wrightson Wool Store on Blenheim Road, Christchurch.

The Farmy Army says the fresh food hampers will be delivered to agencies who are most in need in Canterbury.
