Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - NEWS - MT DRUITT-ST MARYS STAN­DARD, Wed­nes­day, June 10, 2015

RES­I­DENTS are in­vited to join the dis­cus­sion on prob­lem gam­bling when for­mer Par­ra­matta Eels player Nathan Hind­marsh shares his in­sights at Emer­ton to­day.

The for­mer NRL star (pic­tured) will speak at a Prob- lem Gam­bling Fo­rum at The Holy Fam­ily Cen­tre, from 11am, on be­half of CatholicCare so­cial ser­vices.

The fo­rum will co­in­cide with Re­spon­si­ble Gam­bling Aware­ness Week.

In 2012, Hind­marsh spoke can­didly of his gam­bling ad- dic­tion in his au­to­bi­og­ra­phy, re­veal­ing how he lost more than $200,000 on poker ma­chines dur­ing his sixyear battle.

He will dis­cuss gam­bling is­sues in the hope of reach­ing out to oth­ers bat­tling the same demons.

The fo­rum will be held at The Shed, at the The Holy Fam­ily Cen­tre, on the cor­ner of Emert Pde and We­ber Cres, Emer­ton. De­tails: 8822 2222. For gam­bling help, call 1800 858 858 or visit gam­blinghelp.nsw.gov.au.
