Rural Women’s Day 2020 to be Hosted at Glen Dawn Woolshed this October!

02nd Oct 2020





Calling all you rural ladies! GLENRAC’s annual Rural Women’s Day will be hosted at Glen Dawn Woolshed on Glen Legh Rd this year.  

Coinciding with the United Nation’s International Day of Rural Women, the event will be a celebration of the health, wealth and wellness of farming women across the district.

Financial adviser Ben Law (otherwise known as Queensland Country Life’s Financial Bloke) will headline the event, Zooming in to the woolshed to advise attendees on how to achieve financial freedom using the five pillars of the Wealth Windmill – teaming, planning, protecting, focusing and growing. 

“Financial freedom. It sounds like one of those terms bandied about by soy-latte-drinking city dwellers, or a fancy way of describing funding for your retirement, right? But the truth is, financial freedom is a concept any woman who wants to become financially successful must understand,” said Ben. 

Also presenting on the day will be local exercise physiologist and clinical Pilates teacher, Ellen Adams from Moveology New England, who will talk about the importance of strong female bodies and provide some exercises to improve desk posture for attendees to take home on the day. 

Rural Adversity Mental Health Program Coordinator, Letitia Cross, will be on hand to discuss the importance of female friendships and social connection for women’s mental wellbeing, and HealthWISE primary health care nurse, Chris Connor, will advise ladies on the top tips for talking to their doctors, as well as performing health checks on the day.  

“Rural Women’s Day has become a standout event in the GLENRAC calendar as it provides an opportunity for social connection and is such a fun day for all who attend,” said event organiser, GLENRAC Project Officer, Jennene Perkins.  

“We have a stellar line up of speakers on offer this year, all ready with handy tips and tricks for the ladies to take home. The Glen Dawn Woolshed overlooks the landscape surrounding and promises to be a fantastic event venue for everyone to enjoy on the day.”
