On Friday 5 October, RMIT Training’s marketing team volunteered for a busy day preparing Edgar’s Mission Farm Sanctuary for its World Animal Day celebrations.
The marketing team cleaned animal pens, sorted food donations and cleared paddocks as part of RMIT Training’s community day initiative, which allows each employee to take a day of volunteer leave to do work that benefits the community. The team particularly enjoyed meeting some of the inquisitive farm animals!
Edgar’s Mission is a not-for-profit organisation founded by Pam Ahern to rescue farm animals from neglect and abuse. Set on 600 acres in the foothills of the Great Dividing Range, it provides a haven for around 300 animals.
Although it was hard work, the marketing team thoroughly enjoyed helping make the farm picture-perfect for the celebrations on Sunday 7 October, which included demonstrations, animal-friendly stalls, food, music and fun with the rescued animals.
