THE Murrumbidgee Men's Group addressing mental health issues has been given a boost thanks to a financial donation from the Riverina Modified Car Meet.
The monthly meet last week raised $600 for the group, which was donated to the group at the weekend.
In a statement, the group's founders Rhys Cummins and Jesse Warran-Rigby thanked the efforts of the fundraiser and those who attended.
"It's fantastic to see our community get behind MMG and most importantly raising awareness about men's mental health," the statement reads.
"The funds will go a long way to securing the future of MMG and enable us to take groups to surrounding communities in our region."
Event organiser Sam Lowe said the amount raised was fantastic.
"The boys from the group came down and checked it out," Mr Lowe said.
"Jesse presented the trophies and raffles prizes to all the winners - it was a great night.
"We ended up getting about 100 or so cars in. Unfortunately the weather was against us on the day and it wasn't ideal to bring the cars out but that didn't matter for some."
Last Friday, the group hosted Manly Sea Eagles' player Joel Thompson, who shared his story about mental health issues and presented advice about coping mechanisms.
