Departing from Busselton early Thursday morning, the group travelled to Dumbleyung for lunch to refuel their bellies and tanks, before making their way to Hyden to complete their first day of travel.
Men’s Shed Representative Graham Wilson said, “Mental health is an important part of what we do and we strongly support any initiative that supports mental health. To show our appreciation for the participant’s efforts we supplied the lunch free of charge.”
Dumbleyung Men’s Shed also presented the group with a cheque for $300.
All proceeds raised go towards their continued funding of Lifeline’s Online Crisis Support chat service and Mental Health First Aid’s teen MHFA program in Australia Secondary Schools.
