You can help this weekend. Bring essential supplies. We’ll do the rest!


Show for Farmers

The Newcastle Stitches & Craft Show organisers, Expertise Events, is raising funds for the farming community of the Hunter region. This ‘Show for Farmers’ fundraising appeal is supported by the Lions Club of Belmont & District.


There is a huge raffle of craft supplies where 100% of the funds raised going directly to the farmers most in need. Providing food hampers, care packs, drinking water, mental health services and support for the families along with stock feed for their farm.
The raffle contains craft supplies and gifts donated by exhibitors of the show and the craft community at large. Buy raffle tickets at the show and you could win products worth thousands of dollars!

Be at the show on Sunday August 19, 2018 at 3.30pm for the raffle draw!

Food Drop

Come to the show this weekend and bring non-perishable supplies such as canned food, pasta, sauces, tea, coffee, long-life milk, bottled water and dog food. With the help of the Lions Club, these items will be transported directly to farmers most in need in the Hunter region.

There is no end in sight to the current drought and we don’t expect that this natural disaster will be the last but at least we can band together and show support for our farmers.
