Judy of Cammeray said about the WINGS of Hope website and the Remembrance Gathering:
"I visit this site regularly & have posted a comment recently. My daughter died by suicide last July, losing the battle with anorexia. I intend to go to the Memorial Day at Balmoral this year & will rely on the WINGS of Hope website for information. I look for reassurance from this & other websites, that I am not alone in my grief."
Saturday, 17 November, 2012 is International Survivors of Suicide Day and this weekend, registered harm prevention charity WINGS of Hope will host a special Remembrance Gathering at Balmoral, NSW.

Spring is here and it’s time to dust off those walking/running shoes and have some fun walking or running across the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge. Every year we hold a social event where any supporters of WINGS of Hope can enter the Sydney Running Festival events (which include the 4km Family fun run). Not walking or running? Please join us for brunch at circular quay. Read about this healthy annual event here. You and a friend, or family, can join our team fundraising page which we will set up in September. Email us for info at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can raise funds online by letting your friends, co-workers and community know you are getting outdoors and doing something to help people bereaved by suicide!Read More
