The second annual ‘Moonshiners for Mental Health’ charity day is on this Saturday August 12 at Alby Lofts Oval, Brunswick Heads.

The Mullumbimby Moonshiners Rugby Club will be hosting a day of rugby, raffles, giveaways, activities for the kids and some great food and drinks in the hope of raising much-needed awareness for mental health issues, particularly in the local community, club president Teale Pyne said.

The club will be raising funds for mental health charity Beyondblue in support of the great work they do in providing guidance and information to those dealing with mental health issues.

On average, one in eight men will have depression and one in five will experience anxiety at some stage of their lives.

‘Last year’s event was a huge success and we hope to continue to get the message out to the local community that there is help available to those dealing with anxiety and depression,’ Teale said.

The Moonshiners will be taking on Byron Bay in reserve grade at 1.50pm followed by Casuarina vs Byron Bay in first grade at 3.15pm.
