Darwin Grand Fondo 2022
SR4L were one of the 2 charities chosen by the Happy Days Stickers team to fundraise this year in the Gran Fondo annual cycle event. SR4L committee members and family also participated in this great community event. Our involvement together with Mates in Construction helped shine a light on suicide, suicide prevention and mental illness. So far a total of $5286 has been raised.
We thank all donors and sponsors and in particular Michelle and Gareth from the Happy Days team for selecting our charity this year.

Darwin High School Visit
SR4L Founding Director Lidia Di Lembo visited Darwin High School to speak with students about a project to support NT youth to be able to speak about their mental health & wellbeing that SR4L would like to see come to fruition. It is about storytelling to help reduce stigma of suicide and mental unwellness, kindness, compassion, empowerment for those who suffer or have suffered from some form of adversity and recognition of others who help those struggling.
The purpose is to encourage young people to share their story of their struggles or a distressful situation in their life, and how they coped or who helped them, including mental illness or situational crisis, as a way of giving hope to other young people who might be experiencing similar behaviours or situations.
