Blades of Glencoe Shearathon is a successful day

The inaugural Blades of Glencoe Shearathon attracted attendees from South Australia and Victoria, and raised plenty of money for beyondblue. 

Of the sixty shearers taking part there were many locals, including Apsley-based shearer Richie Foster, and Lydia Johnson, who lives north of Lucindale. 

The Naracoorte Spinners and Weavers Group also did incredible fundraising work, raising $300 by themselves for beyondblue by selling woollen hats, scarves, and other handknitted items.
