The Nyngan Show Society is one of 31 show societies to receive goods from the Royal Agricultural Show Society of NSW Foundation (RASF).

The RASF in collaboration with Good360, along with donation from 'thank a farmer' day at the 2019 Sydney Royal Easter Show saw 31 show societies share in 33 pallets of kitchenware donated by Rockpool Dining Group, plus kitchen goods and toys worth over $600,000.

RAS Foundation Manager, Cecilia Logan, said the goods sourced by Good360 are a welcome boost for small show societies and community groups throughout NSW especially doing it tough in the drought.

"We believe the goods will enhance these spaces and allow locals to come together at great local events supporting their communities," Ms Logan said.

"We recognise how vital these spaces are for small communities and understand the difficulty of raising money for local projects, and that is where the Good360 initiative can be so helpful.

"Making these goods available for our regional and rural communities gives them extra resources which are often incredibly difficult to come by in areas still affected by drought."

Ms Logan said the RAS Foundation are a proud partner with Good360, who work to connect surplus with need.

"Their support is helping us to build strong and vibrant communities," she said.

"The generosity of Trenton International was also a boost and we are incredibly grateful for their support as well."

The toys and kitchenware, distributed from Sydney and Dubbo Showgrounds, were collected by volunteers from the societies, eager to get them back to their communities and start planning for events and celebrating their early Christmas windfall.
