PBFC will be holding its annual fundraising day on Saturday 1st August 9am – 12pm.  This year we are fundraising for Kids Helpline.

Kids Helpline is a free 24 hour counselling service for Australian kids and young people aged 5-25 years. Kids and young people can get help over the phoneemail or web.

Kids Helpline counsellors talk with more than 6,000 kids each week, and help with all sorts of problems, big and small.

This is a confidential service and all counsellors are qualified.

Young people contact the service about a wide range of issues, from everyday topics such as family, friends and school to more serious issues of abuse, bullying, mental health issues, drug and alcohol use, homelessness and suicide.

On average, Kids Helpline receives one contact every minute of every day. For every 10 kids that contact us, 6 get through, 4 don’t.

No other organisation speaks with as many young Australians.

As well as the usual face painting, bbq, cake stall and jumping castle, this year there will also be a chocolate toss, and secret goody bag stall.

For those who wish to raise even more funds, PBFC has also signed up to participate in the City to Surf on Sunday 9th August.
