Thanks to the support of patrons at Clare Rodeo this year, the club has donated about $8000 to the community.

President Keith Pluckrose said nine groups shared in the donations - but all clubs also assisted in some form at this year's rodeo.

Clare Flying Group, Clare Scout Group, Clare CFS Brigade, Watervale Primary School, Burra Pony Club, Clare Men's Shed, Model Engineers, individual Lauren French and Hilltown Tennis Club all shared the donation.

Each group will put their funding towards projects taking place.

Mr Pluckrose and secretary Jane Owen presented each group with their cheque and was pleased to do so.

He said plans were well underway for next year's rodeo and he hoped to see many people there again.

Mr Pluckrose thanked all sponsors and patrons for their support this year and looked forward to many more years of Clare Rodeo.
