VICKI Walsh from The Laundry Pad, like most people, wants to do something for graziers suffering from the drought crippling the state.

So she posted on her Facebook page on Wednesday that the business is ready to “Do it for the farmers”.

"For the month of August on a Wednesday, The Laundry Pad will do it for the farmers,” she posted. “For every domestic load, wash, dry and fold, valued at $25, $5 will be donated back to our local farmers in need. So you can do your bit by gathering up that washing and bringing it to The Laundry Pad. Every cent counts. Spread the word."

Ms Walsh told the Oberon Review that there was a huge response within an hour of the post going up.

"There's been 1253 people reached and 29 shares. It's going off, and other businesses are jumping on board,” she said.

“Sharon Whittaker from Pick of the Bunch was one of the first. I hope other Oberon businesses jump on board."

Maisie Richardson, on Facebook, said it was a great idea. “I do my own laundry, but $25 is on the way for you to add to the cause,” she said.
