Locals in and around Penrith are rallying for the ‘ladies of the land’ campaign, with donations coming in thick and fast.

The campaign, which kicked off last month, is designed to give ladies in the farming communities struggling with the ongoing drought, something to smile about in the form of pamper packs.

Greater Sydney Local Land Services (GS LLS) signed up to support the campaign, nominating its Penrith and Wyong offices as a drop off point for donations.

“The response has been heart-warming, we put it out on our social media and donations started flowing through the door,” General Manager Sharon Elliott said.

“It’s a great and hugely important cause and one we’re proud to get behind.”

Linsey Hall from Glenmore Park ladies social group A Taste of Everything visited the GS LLS office this week to drop off several packages.

“We just really enjoy giving back to the community,” she said.

People can donate by filling a shoebox with special pamper items, wrapping it in newspaper and tying a ribbon around it.

Donations need to be delivered by December 10 to ensure delivery to impacted areas by Christmas.

Greater Sydney Local Land Services offices are located on Level 4, 2-6 Station Street, Penrith and 22/32 Pacific Hwy, Wyong.
