Lady Shear 2013

Team photo

Thanks for visiting our team fundraising page.

Introductions first.  Meet the team - Carol, Hilary, Sheena, Helen, Kirsty, Shannon, Kate, Lynn, Kyla & Libby.

What we aim to do is shear sheep for a period of eight hours.  We will be set up on 5 boards and shearing in half hour stints (2 to a board). After our work is done some of the professional shearers will take to the boards and compete in a little speed shear - the speed these guys & gals (as we are fortunate enough to have a top female shearer coming to compete) will amaze you!!  Then tools down and a big shin-dig and auction/raffle at night.

Now we all work on farms but none of us claim to be shearers we are simply getting together to do something unique to raise money for two charities - the RHET (Royal Highland Education Trust) and  Newton Stewart Community Hospital.

You'll see our team fundraising target on the right and on each charities page you will see why we think both these charities deserve our support.

Your donation can really help us smash this goal

Remember: Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never share them with anyone or send you unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity. They'll make sure Gift Aid (an additional 28%) is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer, too. That means more money goes to the charity, faster, with JustGiving.

So please dig deep and donate now.
