Gumboot Friday

Waitākiri Admin —

This Friday we are wearing gumboots and bringing a gold coin donation to raise funds for free counselling for young people struggling with their mental health.

For people struggling with depression, it can feel like walking through mud every day.

So on nominated Fridays during the year, we're asking you to show your support, put your gumboots on, give a gold coin, and take a walk in their shoes for just one day.

Gumboot Friday is an initiative by the Key to Life Charitable Trust, a fundraising and advocacy organisation that supports young people who are struggling with their mental health. We help connect young people with existing counsellors or therapists and provide funding for counselling, so that they get help as soon as they need it.
