Cowboys loss can't dampen spirits
Wristbands, frisbees, 'Morgo' masks, footy passing, fancy pens and more – the LGIAsuper Community Hub was the place to be on Saturday night as we hosted headspace Townsville and Mental Illness Fellowship North Queensland (MIFNQ).
Besides handing out stacks of cool merchandise items, the headspace and MIFNQ teams reinforced the message that it’s OK to ‘ask for help.’
Headspace provides free confidential health services for young people aged 12-25 in the Townsville area. Their latest project, Shedspace is the first of its kind in Australia and will offer activities such as woodwork, metal fabrication, small motors and scooter maintenance, and arts and crafts. Oh, and it doubles as a music recording studio!
MIFNQ is also committed to supporting those with a mental illness, as well as their family and carers.
Its community education programs aim to reduce the stigma of mental illness and encourage people from all walks of life to interact and have fun together.
On-field, it was a night to forget for the Cowboys as the Manly Sea Eagles ran out winners 30-8.
Hundreds of Howdy Club members stacked the hill wearing their Michael Morgan masks but even that wasn’t enough to stop a rampant Manly outfit.
The LGIAsuper Community Hub will return to 1300SMILES Stadium on Friday 31 March for the Cowboys-Rabbitohs clash. If you’re a Howdy Club member, don’t forget to scan your Howdy Club card to claim your merchandise item. New sign-ups will receive one of our famous Howdy Hats! Yee ha!
