Ride funds boost Lifeline
LIFELINE Tasmania has thanked a group of bikers for raising funds that will allow it to expand its Suicide Bereavement Groups statewide.
Lifeline Tasmania CEO Debbie Evans said with suicide continuing to be a leading cause of death in Tasmania it was critical services were expanded.
The funds raised from this year’s one-day motor bike ride from Campbell Town to the East Coast will help fund a Suicide Bereavement Group coordinator.
Black Dog 1-Dayer volunteer Betty Parssey said this year’s run was the seventh to help raise awareness of depression and suicide prevention. For 24/7 crisis support contact Lifeline on 13 11 14, visit www.lifeline. org.au or Kids Helpline www.kidshelp.com. au or call 1800 551 800.
