Rustle Up for Sleepy's Shear-A-Thon

Russ Sleep is a local Peterborough shearer ready to take on time itself, as he prepares for a marathon 24 hours of shearing this long weekend, all in the name of raising money for Camp Quality.

With the event taking place at Jamestown's Victoria Park Showgrounds from Saturday through to Sunday, Russ plans to shear for as close to 24 continuous hours as possible.

He will only be stopping to change his comb every 2 hours and stock up on energy supplies with some snacks.

Russ joined Flow FM on today's Country Viewpoint to share his story.

Show your support for Russ by heading along to Sleepy's Shear-a-thon in Jamestown over the long weekend (details below), or by visiting his online Everyday Hero fundraising page.
