Narooma Rotarians marked Mental Health Week with a “Hat Night” on the night of Thursday, October 12 to “lift the lid” on mental health and raise funds for Australian Rotary Health mental health research projects.
Narooma Rotarian Bob Antill thanked the event’s guest speaker Liz Ruck, Red Cross’ Community Visiting Coordinator for the Eurobodalla.
Hats ranged from the exquisite to the quirky, but the message was the same.
Regular visitors to Narooma, Di and Gordon Bentley from the Rotary Club of Dubbo South were also there.
Australian Rotary Health is one of the largest independent funders of mental health research within Australia.
It also provides funding into a broad range of general health areas, provide scholarships for rural medical and nursing students, as well as Indigenous health students. Australian Rotary Health provides funding into areas of health that do not readily attract funding, and promotes findings to the community.
