The Feilding Volunteer Fire Brigade is again hosting the annual Feilding Hunting Competition.

 

After a successful Hunting Competition in March 2019 to raise money for the Feilding Volunteer Fire Brigade Road Crash Rescue Team to compete at the World Road Rescue Competitions in France, September 2019.

 

We have decided this year to give back to the community in the way of supporting a well deserving charity, “I AM HOPE” mental health and suicide awareness support group. As firefighters ourselves we are very passionate about this as we far too often have to deal with the after math of suicides in our community.

 

“For the last three years Key to Life has been promoting positive attitudinal societal change in the schools and communities up and down the country, and funding private care and counselling for young people stuck in the mud on waiting lists.”

 

I AM HOPE” is the youth and community focused support group run by The Key to Life Charitable Trust, started by Mike King. For the last three years Key to Life has been promoting positive attitudinal societal change in the schools and communities up and down the country, and funding private care and counselling for young people stuck in the mud on waiting lists.

 

In 2018, in New Zealand 137 young people died by suicide and it is estimated another 3500 tried to take their own lives. While Government agencies are doing their best, some kids are stuck waiting up to six months to receive the counselling they urgently need.

 

The Feilding Fire Brigade Hunting Competition will be held on the 6th – 8th March 2020.

 

The Weigh In will be on the 8th March from 10am – 1pm at the Feilding Fire Station.
