In 2013 HALT held the first ‘Save your Bacon’ free brekky for Tradies in Castlemaine on 19th Nov – our way of showing Tradies the community cares about their wellbeing. All goods and services were donated by the community and we had Rotarians cooking the BBQ. It was a real community effort! We also handed out HALT showbags to all the Tradies containing coffee, chocolate, sunscreen, mini-puddings and, most importantly, information on where they could look for help if they were feeling depressed, sad, angry or tired.

100 Tradies attended this highly successful event that and it has received some great coverage since in various local news outlets.
