The Today Show will be broadcasting live from Warren on Tuesday as part of a campaign to raise awareness for farming communities.

The broadcast is part of the Let it Pour campaign. It encourages people to buy a beer during fundraising events on October 25 to 27.

That money will then be given to a drought relief fund organised by Rotary Australia and administered by the Bendigo Bank.

The Warren Services Club was one of the first NSW venues to sign up to a Let it Pour event. Because of that, the Today Show will be at the venue on Tuesday morning to broadcast the weather from the services club.

Let it Pour fundraising events will also be held at the Railway Junction, Milestone Hotel and Westside Hotel in Dubbo, as well as the Cobar Bowling and Golf Club and the Empire Hotel in Cobar.

The Great Northern Brewing Company is donating 1000 kegs to hundreds of venues taking part in the fundraisers.

Today Show host Deborah Knight has urged people to head to Warren Services Club for a barbecue breakfast and live broadcast with weather presenter Tim Davies.

"We are really proud of our partnership with Great Northern's Let it Pour camp aign and we're excited to be coming to Warren to help raise national awareness of the drought and to meet some of the incredibly resilient people who live in our rural heartland," Ms Knight said.

"We're hoping the entire town of Warren - and people from surrounding areas - join in the fun of a live broadcast at the Warren Services Club on Tuesday from 5.30am to 9am."

Last year money raised through Let it Pour was given to people who needed help with everything from feed for livestock to school supplies for children.
