Sir John Kirwan is in town on Friday thanks to Westpac, and he is going to be providing some advice to those affected by the recent fires and the drought.
Both of these events are difficult enough by themselves. The combined effects of fire and drought in parts of our region are having significant effects on our community.
Thanks to the generosity of Westpac who are funding JK’s visit, people can take some time out of their day during lunch time to come and listen and get some 'tools for the toolbox'.
JK will discuss how to spot the signs of stress in yourself, family, friends or colleagues who may be feeling under pressure from the events. JK will give advice on such topics as: opening up lines of communication with others, how to personally manage stressful feelings and situations, where to turn for help and how to become more resilient.
It’s a great opportunity to spend a Friday lunchtime listening to this engaging speaker. Local businesses might want to bring your team, workmates or family could get together and come down. Light nibbles and refreshments will be provided.
We don’t get these opportunities for free advice of this calibre very often – you don’t want to miss it!
12.30-1.30 at the Hope Community Church, Ranzau Road, Hope. Cost: free!
