“Droving the Blues Away” is a fundraising cattle drive that will take place along 260 kilometres  in the Riverina Region.

At each stock resting point, an event will bring the community together to raise awareness of mental health issues and the support services available.

At the end of the six week drive, the stock will be sold at a celebrity auction at Wagga Wagga Livestock Marketing Centre, with all funds raised donated to respected mental health community-based organisation, Riverina Bluebell.

All proceeds raised at the auction and during the drive will go to Riverina Bluebell to support their continuing campaign for increased mental health support within our local communities.

Starting at the Henty Machinery Field Days on Wednesday 21 September 2016, the drive will visit Lockhart on Friday 30 September, where a free community event will be held at the Droving the Blues Away community stock camp from 4.30pm - 8pm at Lockhart Recreation Grounds.

The event will include a jumping castle, mechanical bull, giant slide, live music, BBQ & refreshments.
