Black Dog Ride - Charity Fundraising

Community Rocks!!

Settlers Tavern presented Black Dog Ride Charity a cheque in the amount of $2,625.00 to go towards the worthy cause of raising awareness of depression and suicide prevention.

Les James of Busselton was the Black Dog Ride Co-Ordinator and a very passionate advocate of the cause. Les was also an associate of the Settlers Tavern and sadly lost his life in a motorcycle accident.

Settlers Tavern holds a meat raffle every Tuesday between 4-6pm in the Front Bar, we invite you to buy a ticket.

All proceeds go to the charity of choice (by the Settlers team), keep an eye out for the next charity.

Thank you to all our patrons who purchased a ticket you contributed greatly to this cause.

Black Dog Ride story.....

Five years ago, Steve Andrews found himself at the funeral of his best mate Jack Michael's wife. Anna was a beautiful woman, a wife and mother whose life was cut short by a silent struggle with depression. Tragically, Steves' own mother had also taken her own life years earlier. Every year in Australia 1,000,000 adults and 100,000 young people live with depression, 50% won't seek treatment and nearly 3,000 will take their own lives every single year.
In 2009, Steve embarked upon a solo month long motorbike journey around Australia raising $34,000 for the Suicide Call Back Service and engaging thousans of Australians with his message of awareness.

Only five short years after the inaugural Black Dog Ride, thousands of Australians have joined Steve on the road to raise awareness, and have raised over $1,700,000 for mental health services nationwide.
