The third annual Moonshiners for Mental Health charity day is on this Saturday 14th July 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 with the hope of raising much-needed awareness of mental health issues.
All funds raised will go directly to Beyondblue, an organisation that provides information and support to help everyone in Australia achieve their best possible mental health, whatever their age and wherever they live
‘This event has been a huge success over the last few years 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,’ said Teale Pyne, president of Mullumbimby Rugby Club.
‘Beyondblue is doing a great job of bringing support and information on mental health issues to the community and highlights that you don’t have to feel alone; there are assistance and treatments available.
‘It’s important to remember that depression and anxiety are conditions, not weaknesses, and effective treatments are available.’
Local bragging rights are up for grabs with the Moonshiners taking on Byron Bay in reserve grade at 1.50pm followed by SCU v Byron Bay in first grade at 3.15pm. Mullum and Byron have had some epic encounters over the years and this match will not disappoint rugby fans.
