Clayton Wood

Stars of The Border 2022

My Story...

Clayton currently works and lives in Albury with his wife Kate and two kids, Zoe and Alex.  Clayton grew up in Albury Wodonga for most of his life, but did have a small couple stints in Melbourne, but has ended up back in the best place! 

Clayton loves to help small business owners and loves the local network of businesses, regularly making new connections through Local Albury Business Connect events. 

You will quickly realise he loves all things tech and is generally a bit nerdy when it comes to learning new things. This is why he has a few businesses and online startups.

Clayton studied for a double degree in Accounting and IT at CSU. Clayton began working as an accountant 15 years ago and took over Business Edge Advisors over eight years ago.  Clayton then went on to open his first startup, an Online Return business, followed by Escape Room Albury five years ago.  His latest business venture is an SaaS business, Seamlss which helps service based firms onboard clients. 

 As a younger fella, Clayton played football for Wodonga Bulldogs, Barnawartha and Wodonga Saints. In what was a very long, uneventful career, but made many memories and friendships along the way. 

 “Being part of the team with Stars of the Border is an exciting and amazing opportunity for me to help build awareness and raise money for a cause that impacts everyone in our community,” Clayton said. 

 

My Updates

Hitting the first goal... plus learning to actually dance :)

I made it, to my first goal of $3,000, a massive thank you to everyone for your support and encouragement so far. As always, onward and upward to the next goal of $5,000. Cant stop short with a few weeks to go, we can work towards the end to raise more for this great cause. While the events have started to wind down, we‘re still open for teams to play the Escape Room Battle as one of my Fundraisers, just book in and mention you're entering the battle for your business or team.

Some people have been asking what is it… well it’s… local celebrities, Business Owners, and personalities from your area as they strap on their dancing shoes to raise vital funds for people affected by cancer. Prizes are awarded on the night as we dance in front of 500 people at Albury Entertainment Center and could be awarded for Judges' Choice, People's Choice, and Highest Fundraiser(this is where you come in 😉).

So we’re in full swing with dance practice and getting those steps down 100%. My dance teacher Holly has been amazing and putting in the real hard work trying to get my feet moving and arms swinging in the right order. Our dance is a combination of Jazz Cabarete and I can’t wait to get out there and perform on the 20th of May. Learning a new skill is hard, but the results will pay off and on the plus side I might be able to say I can dance... finally. 😊

As a whole group, we also do a big dance together, that dance is coming along great too. Plus as a whole, the Stars of the Border has already raised over $70k, an amazing group effort that is great for the community. The funds raised go towards locals gaining access to help and support in their time of need. The Dance for Cancer event runs all over and as a whole for 2022 so far has 235 dancers, that have raised over $1.6Million dollars for the Cancer Council!!! That is amazing! With 1 in 2 Australians diagnosed with cancer by the age of 85, the money raised goes towards Cancer Council NSW and their world-class cancer research, prevention programs, advocacy, and support services to help those affected by cancer at every point in their journey.

We understand many are doing it tough at the moment, but we really do appreciate all the generosity to attend events and support us in our efforts to raise as much as possible.
