‘Overwhelming’ support for Beyondblue
More than $110,000 will be donated to Beyondblue after a monthlong fundraising initiative by CITIC Pacific Mining staff and contractors at the Sino Iron project.
CITIC chief executive Chen Zeng said the support had been overwhelming.
“Clearly this is an issue which strikes a chord right across the community,” he said.
Beyondblue chief executive Georgie Harman said the donation would help the charity continue their work.
“Not only has CPM raised a huge amount of money, but by speaking openly about depression and anxiety, they are helping to break down stigma, both in their workplaces and in the wider community, which makes it easier for people to get help when they need it,” he said.
Mr Harman said he “loved” the big blue truck idea.
