Mates Matter

The gift of mateship and South Australians looking after one another is the message underpinning the display of gifts artfully placed to resemble a Christmas tree. In a year when our mental health has never been more important, Rundle Mall has partnered with mental health awareness charity LIVIN and Bendigo Bank to support LIVIN’s mental health education programs in South Australian schools. The programs show teens ‘it ain’t weak to speak’ and aim to smash the stigma surrounding mental health. Visitors can support LIVIN’s work in South Australia by making a donation using the tap and go facilities at this window.
