Kantar Australia support Life Education visit to drought-stricken NSW school

For many NSW farming communities, 2018 has been a difficult year with the entire state impacted by drought. To help brighten the lives of kids doing it tough, Healthy Harold brought some fun and colour to the outback.

Earlier in the year, in August Trundle Central School had a surprise visit from Healthy Harold who delivered some colour to kids in one of NSW’s most drought stricken areas. Then in November, thanks to generous donation from Kantar Australia and Northparkes Mines, Trundle Central School and St Patrick’s School received a visit from the Life Education van.

Trundle Central School Principal John Southon said Healthy Harold delivered a boost to the kids at a time when they need it the most.

“The kids are coming from a depressed, dying environment. The paddocks are brown, we are having dust storms. This makes such a difference,” he said.
