    THIS week Australia celebrates National Op-shop Week and Euroa’s Bowerbird and Anglican Church Op-shops are rejoicing in the long held tradition.

    Euroa Health’s Bowerbird Op-shop was established in 2008 at 53 Binney Street, Euroa where it still operates six years on.

    Shoppers can visit the store seven days a week with around 50 volunteers working to make that happen.

    Chairperson Kerrie Stackhouse said that they are extremely grateful for the tireless work put in by volunteers.

    To date the Bowerbird has raised around $513,120 for Euroa Health and in the last financial year alone they raised $91,315.

    “It wouldn’t have been raised without the commitment of volunteers,” Kerrie said.
