Mur­ray’s play­ing for Life­line

The Queensland Times - - NEWS OPINION - AN­DREW KORNER an­drew.korner@qt.com.au

AS A change of pace for to­day’s editorial, I thought I’d bring your at­ten­tion to a bloke who has been do­ing his bit to help gen­uine Aussie bat­tlers.

If you went shop­ping at River­link on Thurs­day or Fri­day, you might have no­ticed a bloke play­ing clas­si­cal gui­tar some­where near JB Hi-Fi.

Mur­ray Man­del in­cluded River­link among the 150 venues that he will per­form at as part of an epic three-year char­ity tour sup­port­ing Life­line.

If you can say one thing about this 64-year-old Syd­neysider, it’s that he is pas­sion­ate.

Pro­foundly deaf since birth, Mur­ray takes his mis­sion very se­ri­ously.

If you see him play­ing, be sure to drop a few coins into his col­lec­tion bas­ket and you’ll make his day.
