Chase away the winter blues and enjoy a flick under the stars, all for a good cause. Sam Brunskill, a national ambassador for the Ian Parker Bipolar Fund, said winter can be hard for some.
“Seeing more news stories about young people committing suicide, for us it felt like often in winter people can be withdrawn,” she said.
The movie on schedule is The BBQ, to get people out and socialising and Ms Brunskill urges the community to come.
“It’s a good opportunity for people experiencing mental illness to get outside, connect with others and enjoy themselves,” she said.
“Wagga should come along because often the biggest shift for someone struggling is just being at event like this one.
“Seeing so many people out in support can help them realise they’re not alone.”
Add some warmth by purchasing a beanie, all proceeds from sales go to the Ian Parker Bipolar Fund. The event is this Friday in Central Park, Hazlewood Drive, Forest Hill.
No tickets needed. Just bring a picnic, a blanket and your friends. In the event of rain, it will be moved to Forest Hill Public School, keep an eye on Brunslea Park’s Facebook page.
