This year's charity weekend will be held on the 24th and 25th of May in support of beyondblue. beyondblue is working to reduce the impact of depression and anxiety in the community by raising awareness and understanding, empowering people to seek help, and supporting recovery, management and resilience. We hope to use ...the weekend, and the weeks leading up to it, not just to raise money for beyondblue, but to raise awareness about their support services for people experiencing anxiety and depression as well as their family and friends.

We are asking all comp teams to purchase a pair of light blue socks to wear for their matches that weekend. We will be holding barbeques at Erina on Saturday on Sunday, and at Fagans on Sunday. You can also have your hair sprayed blue for a gold coin donation on Saturday morning at Erina.

Information about the services offered by beyondblue. If you, a friend, or family member are experiencing anxiety or depression, please check out the help available on their website.
