The Magpies will host their fourth “headspace day” with four games of rugby kicking off at 12 noon followed by live music and dinner.

The club has organised special jerseys for the clash against Barbarians, which will be auctioned off, with all proceeds being donated to headspace Tamworth.

headspace Tamworth manager Azaan Vhora said they are very grateful to have organisations like Tamworth Rugby Club dedicate time and effort into promoting awareness around youth mental health.

“The proceeds from headspace day will be directed towards improving the service delivery within the centre and will enable us to venture into the community and breakdown the stigma of mental illness,” Vhora said.

The funds from last years event were used by the Youth Reference Group to purchase new chairs for the centre’s meeting rooms.
