Maritime Super Annual Charity Ambrose Golf Day
26 · October · 2016

Around 80 people attended the Charity Day, which is an annual event where by Maritime Super donates all financial contributions made on the day to Hunterlink. This year they raised $6500. The contributions help Hunterlink to provide support, education, early intervention regarding mental health and mental wellness to employees of the maritime.

The day kicked off with an early breakfast and tee off at 8am, 16 teams of 4 ready to compete for the Maritime Super cup! It was a great opportunity for members and employees to network whilst playing 18 holes of golf. Jake said that here was lots of opportunity for open conversation around the golf course on mental health and how to look out for your work mates.

The day concluded with Jake giving a presentation at the post game luncheon, about how Hunterlink is continuing to support maritime industry workers at a difficult time in the shipping industry, by providing support for their mental health and mental wellness. Jake was able to talk about checking in with your work mate’s mental health and what to do if they aren’t ok.

As a result of the day a donation from Wellington Management for $750 was received directly to Hunterlink.
