HookUp cash funds headspace centre in Gladstone

THE cheque is in the mail from the Boyne Tannum HookUp merchandise sale, which will mean $10,000 goes towards the establishment of a headspace centre in Gladstone.

Headspace is a national initiative which helps young people struggling with mental health issues.

Colleen Tribe, general manager of Roseberry Community Services (RCS), said headspace would help alleviate some of the pressures which her organisation was now facing.

The $10,000, $8000 of which came from the Boyne Tannum HookUp merchandise alone, will go towards funding a project manager. Rio Tinto Yarwun, Queensland Alumina Limited and Boyne Smelters Limited helped organise the merchandise and contributed an additional $2000 to the headspace donation.
