FFF at Share The Love 

FFF had a great time at the Share the Love pop-up fundraiser from 8am to 4pm on market day, Saturday 24 July, at the Yungaburra Community Hall. Supporting charities including FNQ Foster Farms, Mareeba Animal Refuge and Lakeside Community Church Yungaburra, there were many bargains on offer plus the chance to go into a prize pool valued at $1,200+ for every $5 spent. 

In addition to the $340 raised to go toward our rehabilitation, retraining and rehoming efforts, we also had important conversations with our community about responsible animal ownership and adoption.

BellaCapella Community Choir performed on the day. 

FFF at 2021 Atherton Show

Walk-in Wardrobe Yungaburra

FNQ Foster Farms had a fantastic experience at Walk-in Wardrobe, raising $253.50 which allowed us to buy 25 square bales of hay for our inmates.

Each day we go through:

- 5 square hay bales

- 35kg lucerne pellets

- 6kg copra

- 10kg pony pellets.

Events like this are integral for us to be able to raise funds that cover this upkeep.

Special thanks to Tablelands Laundra-Mat who provided free washing and drying services for all the pre-loved clothes.

Goose Club at the Pub

In March 2020 we returned to Yungaburra. The supportive locals donated prizes for our Goose Club and took ticket pages to sell in their businesses. We got to chat some more about FNQ Foster Farms and animal rescue when we sold tickets outside Foodworks on the Saturday prior to the event. The night of the Goose Club was a rousing success, with some lucky winners even donating their prizes back.

Picnic With Pop Pop

In February 2020, our oldest resident Pop-Pop reached the equine equivalent of one hundred human years! We celebrated with Picnic with Pop-Pop at Tinaburra Foreshore and the birthday boy got to go for a swim, make new friends and eat his very own cake. There were a few new faces (and unsuspecting bystanders) to share our philosophy and vision with and we even learnt the steps to 'Cowboy Boogie'.

(L–R) Lizzie helps birthday boy Lollipop eat his cake, while Snickers scores some too.

Malanda Pony Club Rally Day

In January 2020, Sue, Chantelle, Lizzie, Joey and Olly joined Malanda Horse and Pony Club members for the first rally day of the year. Outings like this are important to help socialise the horses and assist with their training, as well as just being FUN!

Sue helps Lizzie mount Olly from the ramp to protect his back.

Mareeba Rodeo Downtown Parade

Some epic lolly throwing, glow-sticking and bubble blowing took place at the 2019 Mareeba Rodeo Downtown Parade and FNQ Foster Farms were thrilled to win a cash prize for best community organisation float! 

While we were disappointed to hear that the Mareeba Rodeo has been cancelled for the second year in a row, we know it will return bigger and better than ever and we look forward to joining in the fun. 

Lizzie gives the thumb of approval for our float setup, and secures the lollies so Chantelle can't eat them all.

2018 Astute Atherton Maize Festival

In 2018, volunteer Chantelle embarked on a journey to raise funds for FFF through the Astute Atherton Maize Festival program. Throughout the duration, several fundraisers were run including hundred dollar boards, bric-a-brac stalls at local markets, a pie drive and the original FFF trivia night, with a total $3,130 raised. Lots of professional development was undertaken and there were many opportunities to engage with the community about the work FFF does, culminating in Chantelle securing the 2018 Charity Ambassador title and sparking her continuing commitment to promoting animal welfare and FFF.
