Armstrong Nissan stepping up to help fight the drought!

With drought crippling the majority of QLD and the Darling Downs, it takes the generous efforts of locals and organisations such as Drought Angels to bring a little relief to those in need in these desperate times.

Having been part of the Toowoomba and Darling Downs region and community since 1991, Jacqui & John Armstrong are no strangers to how tough drought is for those on the land. Over the years they have seen many of their customers and friends struggle both personally and financially under the stress of drought.

A recent sponsorship with local establishment Fitzy’s “Feast for a Farmer” event highlighted further the plight of those on the land and within the region and the fantastic work of Drought Angels.

Despite the tough economic climate and drought impacting their own business at this time - Jacqui and John were inspired to dig deep for the community and do what they could to support those struggling on the land.

“Some of the stories we have been hearing recently we just find horrific. Despite the growth of Toowoomba over the years, we are still just like a big country town and in times like these everyone should be doing what they can to help out those doing it tough in their communities” Jacqui Armstrong said.

Which is where the idea to gift 5 Nissan Navara’s to Drought Angels was born.

“We are happy to announce that in partnership with Nissan, that we will be providing the use of 5 vehicles to Drought Angels for up to 12 months, to use as required to provide the ongoing support to our farmers and rural communities” John Armstrong added.

Handover of the vehicles to Drought Angels took place on Wednesday 22 January, with Armstrong Nissan supplying the organisation a total of five new Nissan Navara four-wheel drive dual cabs– worth over $250,000 in total.
