A story that will bring a smile to your face
One of the things we love most are stories of real people doing real good for the world around them. The Dorper Farming community has some incredible people in it and recently, we watched a beautiful good news story on ABC’s Landline that put a spotlight on the Dorper farming community.
Earlier this year, Livingstone Christian College, a Gold Coast school found their agricultural program sheep flock had been attacked by dogs and they were left with only a few, a short while before competing at the Ekka. The agricultural program is an important part of the school community and the school community rallied together to raise money to buy a new flock.
Their generosity raised over $8,000 however they didn’t need to. One of the Queensland Dorper farmers are the Curtis Family, who own and run the Bellevue Grazing Company in Milmerran. The family donated the majority of the school’s initial flock and upon hearing the news, they took generosity to a new level and donated another 14 stud grade sheep to the college.
Sophie Curtis, who runs the Bellevue Grazing Company along with her parents David and Robbie, personally delivered the sheep to the school and it was heartwarming to see the appreciation of the students.
So take a look at the landline segment – it goes for just 12 minutes and will put a smile on your face today.
