Dear Supporters of WINGS of Hope
Christmas is traditionally seen as a joyous time but we must remember that for many it can also be a lonely time. For those without a network of family and friends close by, or if they have been through difficult times during the year.
This Festive Season, instead of giving a gift to a friend or loved one we hope that you can make a contribution to our page to support projects for people bereaved by suicide. Some of WINGS of Hope’s community have done this in memory of a lost loved one at Christmas too.
Thank you for your ongoing support and wish you all a safe and Merry Christmas.
Thank you!Read More

Join the WINGS of Hope Running team across the iconic Sydney harbour bridge. This is an opportunity to make new friends and take up a new activity. You can walk or run, short distance or challenge yourself. Or you can just meet the sporty types afterwards for coffee! For those who would like to, we have the skills of an experienced trainer to assist you in the lead up to this activity, with regular training sessions. You will be in good company with people who understand, and most importantly – you will help us to raise much-needed funds for WINGS of Hope.Read More
