NTI supports Burrumbuttock Hay Runners

Australian truck insurer, National Transport Insurance, has confirmed it is a major sponsor of the Burrumbuttock Hay Runners’ 13th Hay Run, assisting drought-affected farmers with hay donations.

The charity initiative will be held 25-27 January, stretching from Darling Point, New South Wales, to Cunnamulla, Queensland.

The partnership follows on from last year’s support of the initiative, which can best be described as a natural progression for both parties, according to NTI Chief Executive Officer, Tony Clark.

“Our relationship with the Hay Runners is one of genuine admiration, and heartfelt support,” said Clark.

“It’s an opportunity for NTI to give back to hardworking Australians who dedicate their lives to sustaining agriculture in our unforgiving climate, and support the volunteers who donate their time and resources,” he said.

Founded by Brendan ‘Bumpa’ Farrell in 2014, the Burrumbuttock Hay Runners helps members of the transport and farming industries by transporting and providing essential resources to drought-stricken farmers throughout regional New South Wales and Queensland.

This event will mark the thirteenth convoy in just four years – each averaging around 200 trucks – to distribute multi-million dollar hauls of hay.
