A helping hand

FROM one community organisation to another, generous people in Coffs are looking out for each other.

Last week the mentors program run from the Coffs Harbour Neighbourhood Centre donated $1000 to the Mens shed.

The money was raised through a barbecue held at bunnings recently and will be put towards the Coffs Harbour Mens shed building fund which is the construction of their new shed.

Running for four years in Coffs, the mentors program is aimed at supporting men who need companionship and support when going through difficult issues like depression.

All contributions which we really appreciate go towards getting this new shed so we can cut down on the rent that we pay and then we can give even more back to the community.

The mentors program has been going for four years in Coffs.

Program that supports men who need some companionship and support in going through difficult issues like depression.

The mentors had a bunnings BBQ a few weeks ago, part of interntaional mens wellbeing day.

Raised $1300 on the day.

Decided to give $1000 to the mens shed as a result of the bbq.

The mentors are a group of blokes, mentoring men, each have one to two mentees that they support and help get through difficult times.

Anyone in the community and all ages, 17 onwards.

Contact the neighbourhood centre to get involved.

The money will go towards our buiding fund, our major priority for the construction of our new shed. 128 Howard street.

All the steel has arrived, hoping within the next three weeks the shed may be up and the move will start from then.

All contributions which we really appreciate go towards getting this new shed so we can cut down on the rent that we pay and then we can give even more back to the community.
