When teachers told then four-year old Josh last year about how Aussie farmers were battling the drought he knew he wanted to do something to help. Josh's mum Lyndall Fokkens said while he was at Berwick Kindergarten he was "very keen to do something to raise money

for the farmers." With his passion for bike riding Lyndall encouraged Josh to do a 'Bike-A-Thon' at the bike track on Avebury Drive in Berwick on Tuesday 22 January with all money raised going towards the Drought Angels. "He loves riding and he loves the bike track so we thought let's just drum up a little bit of interest," she said.
