Why? Because we want to help our rural community in drought.. for rural women to escape the drudgery and relax and have true fun!

We also want to support the team at Pilliga Pottery that has recently taken 8 attempts to get bore water! This certainly comes at a hefty price! So more customers makes their investment in us worthwhile!
