Charity Wool Bale

The Omeo & District Agricultural & Pastoral Society established the Charity Wool Bale program for the Latrobe Valley Base Helimed 1 Auxiliary in 2015. 

Many Wool Growers from across Gippsland who entered their fleeces in the Omeo & District Show, donated them to the Omeo Show Charity Wool Bale. The baled fleeces are later auctioned at the Melbourne Wool Store. 


To date, including the 2022 Show day bales, $105,637 has been raised.

All funds are donated to Latrobe Valley Base Helimed 1 Auxiliary who support Ambulance Victoria's Air Wing fleet of rotary and fixed wing aircraft.  HEMS fleet are based around Victoria with HEMS2 based in the Latrobe Valley.  The Air Wing provides emergency and routine responses across Victoria including our local region. 

Thank you to the many growers who have donated wool in the past.  Donated fleeces are greatly appreciated.  Wool growers wishing to enter and/or donate fleeces this year will again help us raise valuable funds to assist the Auxiliary who help so many families in our Region and beyond.
