Umina Bowls event on RU OK Day

Umina Beach Men's Bowling Club will hold a special event on RU OK Day, Thursday, September 8.

The day draws attention to the place of mental heath especially in men, said club welfare officer Mr Rex Hunt.

"It's a fun day of social bowls," he said.

"It is followed by a lucky dip raffle with memorability and special woodwork gifts donated by members of the Mens Shed.

"And as the official colour is yellow, members and guests are invited to wear yellow shirts on the day."

Mr Hunt said the pandemic had caused a break of two years since the last RU OK bowls day.

"The day attempts to equip and encourage people, especially men, to be observant of one's mates, have conversations with others, and to be open and honest about their state of mind.

"It seeks to build and maintain a support system which is fundamentally important in order to prevent suicide, again especially among men.

"The R U OK? organisation was founded by Gavin Larkin in 2009, following the death of his father Barry in 1995.

"It works collaboratively with experts in suicide prevention and mental illness as well as government departments, corporate leaders, teachers, universities, students and community groups."
