Strong back­ing for anti-bul­ly­ing group

Rouse Hill Times - - NEWS -

THE bat­tle against bul­ly­ing is $40,000 stronger.

That’s how much was raised at the in­au­gu­ral Make Bul­ly­ing His­tory Foun­da­tion char­ity din­ner at Cas­tle Hill RSL.

Guests heard 50,000 stu­dents were im­pacted ev­ery year through anti-bul­ly­ing pro­grams and hun­dreds of fam­i­lies served through do­mes­tic abuse packs.

Foun­da­tion ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor and co-founder Ter­risa Mur­ray said she was ec­static with the pos­i­tive re­la­tion­ships forged.

“I’m so pleased and hum­bled by the feed­back from the guests and the ex­cite­ment of all of our sup­port­ers that they were a part of such a land­mark func­tion that will now be on ev­ery­one’s radar,” she said.

More than 200 guests in­clud­ing fed­eral MP for Mitchell Alex Hawke watched video mes­sages from NSW Po­lice Min­is­ter David Elliott, fed­eral trea­surer Scott Mor­ri­son, Cronulla Sharks NRL play­ers and five times iron­man world cham­pion and char­ity pa­tron Craig Alexan­der.

“Rarely do you find an or­gan­i­sa­tion that is ac­tu­ally at the coal face, de­liv­er­ing real change, rais­ing up the next gen­er­a­tion of lead­ers for our com­mu­nity,” said Alexan­der.
