Those living with a mental health issue within our community are often forgotten, or stigmatised because of reasons beyond their control. Fortunately, there are voluntary committees and fundraising ventures in place that aim to care for and assist those with mental health issues.
You can do your part to help while indulging your love of live music by attending the Music for Mental Health Benefit Gig. This is a launch party to celebrate the work of 26 local artists whose talents are showcased on the Music for Mental Health album, the which all proceeds from sales will be donated to The Coffee Break Project.
The Coffee Break Project encourages members of the community to donate the change in their pocket which they might have used on a store-bought coffee. All funds raised by The Coffee Break Project are directly donated to Group 61, a group of volunteers who care for the mentally ill.
This evening of frivolity and charity will feature performances by Astrid & The Asteroids, Sahara Beck and Amanda Goddard. Buy your tickets now to support this worthy cause.
