Landmark $100,000 flood donation

Rural services company Landmark, will donate $100,000 to the Australian Red Cross to assist with its emergency relief efforts currently directed to many parts of Queensland, and likely to be wider as flooding occurs elsewhere. The donation is made on behalf of Landmark’s Canadian parent company, Agrium Inc.

Mike Wilson, president and CEO of Agrium said, “Agrium together with Landmark is pleased to make this contribution to bring relief to those most affected by the devastating floods”.

Landmark managing director, Richard Norton said the Red Cross is a vital organisation in many rural areas around Australia and involves many rural people as volunteers.

“Landmark has an extensive local presence and an interest in assisting farmers and rural communities wherever they can, so we hope this donation from Agrium will provide considerable benefit through the Red Cross,” he said.

“Plainly this flood crisis is still developing, with months of the wet season yet to run and issues occurring in other parts of the country.

“Landmark will be working at local level in all affected areas in the months ahead to assist people in recovering from this situation,” Mr Norton said.
