HMAS Albatross personnel tackle runways to help farmers

This year’s annual Tour the T at HMAS Albatross has raised $7800 for Operation Farm Assist.

Local defence personnel and local community organisations took part in the eight kilometre fun run/walk around the T shaped runways at the airfield, which is home to the Royal Australian Navy’s Fleet Air Arm earlier this month.

Special guests were Toad and Mandy from Candelo near Bega on the Far South Coast, winners of TV renovation show House Rules.

The couple themselves live on a farm and know the challenges farmers are facing.
