As farmers continue to endure one of the direst ever winters on record, the latest seasonal update has revealed New South Wales is now 100 percent in drought.

June and July have been much drier than expected resulting in failing crops, water shortages and a diminishing supply of fodder in order to sustain stock.

South Coast MP Shelley Hancock says next week, she will be hosting a Big Drought Relief Fundraiser at New South Wales Parliament House to help raise money, while she's also collecting goods and funds at her office in Plunkett Street Nowra.
