Active Farmers and Rotary join forces this weekend in Quandialla

A joint initiative will be running an event for local farmers this coming weekend to help with mental health and as well as an opportunity to get together.

Active Farmers and the Rotary Club of Grenfell are jointly sponsoring a community event at the Quandialla Swimming Centre this Sunday, February 28.

The event will be conducted from 2-6pm and teams of four which must include at least one male adult can be advised to either Kim on 0427472152 or Vicki on 0432178874 by Friday February 26.

Snacks will be provided and you will need the energy to participate in the six challenges that will test your brain, brawn and balance - although absolutely no skills are required!

Challenges will include a mat regatta, belly flopping, flipper throwing, mystery treasure ball hunt, noodle raft race and a six-legged race.

The event will also feature a guest speaker, Ginny Stevens, Founder and CEO of Active Farmers, a fantastic initiative that has been helping those in agriculture for several years.

This event is first of three mental health partnership initiatives that the Rotary Club of Grenfell will sponsor in our community over the coming months.

Rotary has a long-standing interest in mental health and actively supports research through Australian Rotary Health, which has funded over $46 million of research since its establishment in 1981.

Australian Rotary Health is a national, not-for-profit organisation and provides research funding and community education about health in Australia. It supports a broad range of health problems, but specialises in mental health.
