Larry Brewer, who runs North West Express Mobile Butcher, was doing his normal eight-day run of selling meat as far north as Port Hedland last week when his mind turned to helping the growers.

�I have been in the industry for 35 years and have lots of contacts so I rang everyone I know,� he said.

�Harvey Beef is donating 30 cartons of meat, about 400kg that�s just one supplier. The British Sausage Company is giving 50 cartons.�

He will deliver the hampers to a drop-off point designated by the Shire of Carnarvon.

He is being helped by fruit and vegetable growers, Food Rescue, Mondo Butchers and other meat suppliers to co-ordinate the delivery.

Mr Brewer leaves this morning and plans to be in Carnarvon by Friday.
