The Christmas tree will be lit with thousands of lights, representing the 47,000 Western Australians who were brave enough to call 13 11 14 over the last 12 months.
The festive season is the busiest time of year for Lifeline. It is the time of the year where levels of anxiety, depression and suicide increase. It is also a time of giving and, for many Australians, appreciating what they have in the company of loved ones. Your contribution to this campaign will help Lifeline WA train new Telephone Crisis Support Volunteers and continue to provide valued existing volunteers with ongoing training and support so that they can help the thousands of people who call 13 11 14 each year for help.
With so much on this Christmas, the hardest choice you’ll have to make is which awesome event or gift idea to choose! Make sure when you attend any of the above to tag #PHChristmas for your chance to be featured on our Instagram – we can’t wait to see your festive spirit Perth!
