THE Merbein community is encouraged to show their support to drought-stricken farmers during a fundraising barbecue on the Merbein Uniting Church lawns this weekend.

The church will be hosting a Great Outback BBQ lunch in partnership with the Merbein Lions Club and McGinty’s Merbein Butchery, with all proceeds going towards drought-relief organisation Frontier Services.

Church member Lyn Adams said most people in the region knew someone affected by the drought, and that the fundraiser was a simple way for locals to show their support.
