Rallying behind young Mia at Farmer’s Home Fair | Photos

The Wagga community rallied around a young child in need in a remarkable display of support at the Farmer's Home on Saturday.  

The pub's annual Farmer’s Home Fair, which hosted wood chopping, jumping castle and petting zoo festivities, was dedicated to Wagga youngster Mia Stewart, who suffers from congenital femoral deficiency (CFD).

Many of the events required a gold coin donation, while a raffle was also held.

While nothing is usually done with the wood left over from the wood chopping, this year it will be auctioned off in support of Mia.

Farmer’s Home manager Mia Rosetta said the event was well supported throughout the day.

“I think a few people were worried about the weather but that doesn’t seem to have mattered in the end,” she said.

Ms Rosetta said the pub was thrilled to have been approached to throw its support behind the cause.

“We thought it would be great to help a young Wagga girl in need,” she said.

“We always want to give back to the community when we can.”

Mrs Rosetta said she hoped the event could raise at least $1000 for Mia.

All proceeds will help reach the Stewart family's $300,000 goal, to get her to the US for treatment.
