Member for Euroa Annabelle Cleeland with volunteers at Glenaroua’s Woolley Cup. ​

THE 14th edition of the Glenaroua Fire Brigade’s Woolley Cup proved to be a success, with 200 residents from the area attending and more than $8000 raised for the Country Fire Authority team.

The annual sheep races provide an opportunity for the Glenaroua region to come together and recognise volunteers for their achievement and significant contribution to the community.

Member for Euroa Annabelle Cleeland said the event highlighted the meaning of community.

“The whole town turned out to make the night a roaring success with plenty of laughs and all-important fundraising for the CFA brigade,” she said.

“In a town of around 150 people, to have more than 200 locals come to the races is a testament to the strength and connection of the Glenaroua region.”

Ms Cleeland thanked volunteers for organising the event and for their contribution to the CFA’s work in the community.

“CFA brigades are home to some of the most selfless and community focused people you will ever see,” she said.

“It’s great to see an event like this bring people together, entertain and raise essential funds.”
