Strong backing for anti-bullying group
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.
