Veter­ans axe for help

Canning Gazette - - NEWS -

THROW an axe to help sup­port the veter­ans com­mu­nity this week­end.

Lum­ber Punks Axe Throw­ing will hold a fundrais­ing day for Red­six at its Perth, Bris­bane and Gold Coast venues.

All of the money raised from Lum­ber Punks’ 11am ses­sion on Novem­ber 10 will go to Red­six, which aims to re­duce the sui­cide rate in the vet­eran’s com­mu­nity.

“The life-sav­ing work of Red­six holds cur­rency within Lum­ber Punks as we have sev­eral veter­ans work­ing in the busi­ness and we have all seen the ef­fects of men­tal health and de­pres­sion within the vet­eran com­mu­nity,” Rory Swane, from Lum­ber Punks said.

“Aussie veter­ans do so much for this coun­try via their ser­vice.

“We should al­ways have their six.”

Lum­ber Punks has held fundrais­ers for the Na­tional Breast Can­cer Foun­da­tion and Mov­ing For Max.

Its Perth venue is at 131 Kens­ing­ton Street, East Perth.
