‘Over­whelm­ing’ sup­port for Be­yond­blue

Pilbara News - - News -

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.
