Newcastle Weekly contents

thursday 24 november 2016

14 You may’ve noticed that our cover, this week, is somewhat of a departure from our usual bright and happy style. That’s because our cover story is all about the alarming domestic violence rates in the Hunter region and beyond. A sobering subject, no doubt. We spoke with Port Stephens Local Area Commander and Police domestic violence spokesperson for the Northern Region (spanning from the Hawkesbury River to the NSW-Queensland border) Superintendent Chris Craner who said that of 9,000 reported domestic violence incidents in NSW from July to October, 2,300 occurred in the Northern Region. This is an alarming statistic to say the least. As we head into White Ribbon Day this Friday 25 November – an event that kicks off 16 days of activism and encourages men to take a stand against domestic violence, I encourage everyone to say ‘enough is enough’ and take a stand against this societal scourge. Head over to whiteribbon.org.au to find out how you can make a difference and read our story on page 12. What a great respite it was from the Yuletide hustle and bustle to visit Hamilton Uniting Church last week for the launch of their Christmas Tree Carnival. This year, 16 trees decorated by the community have charities attached to them and people vote with a gold coin for their favourite. I have honestly never seen a church look so festive and fecund and I urge everyone to take a look before it wraps up on 17 December. Read story on page 22.

ore than 25% of domestic violence assaults committed in New South Wales from July to October this year occurred in northern NSW.

Spanning from the Hawkesbury River to the NSW-Queensland border, the NSW Police Force Northern Region takes in 12 local area commands, including Newcastle City,

Lake Macquarie, Port Stephens and Central Hunter. Domestic violence spokesperson for the Northern Region – Port Stephens Local Area Commander, Superintendent Chris Craner – said the region accounted for 2,300 of almost 9,000 recorded domestic violence incidents statewide during these four months. “The Northern Region certainly

has the highest rate of domestic violence in the state,” he said. However, under Superintendent Craner’s leadership, there has begun a greater push for domestic violence intervention and prevention in the region. Across the region, if police attend three domestic violence incidents in the same location within six months, police have authority to “lawfully harass” offenders under the Suspect Target Management Plan, regardless of the nature of the assault. Police are also cracking down on Apprehended Violence Order breaches, with a 70% legal action rate, Superintendent Craner said. And, if a strategy is working in one local area command, Superintendent Craner said it was his mission to implement that strategy in areas that may be struggling to combat the issue. “My job is to make sure domestic

violence is at the forefront of everybody’s minds,” he said. “Domestic violence is not a social or a mental or medical issue – it is a criminal act. People need to understand that if you commit domestic violence, you are a criminal.” This is Superintendent Craner’s take-home message for White Ribbon Day. The annual, national anti-domestic violence campaign kicks off tomorrow – Friday 25 November – with 16 days of activism, starting, in the Hunter, with the 10th annual White Ribbon Day breakfast at Wests New Lambton on Friday morning. Men are encouraged to take the pledge against domestic violence and put an end to the crime, which has already claimed the lives of 30 women in NSW this year.

Domestic violence survivor and White Ribbon Day 2016 ambassador, Sherynne Smith. Photo: Peter Stoop

Breaking the silence After decades of suffering in silence, Newcastle woman Sherynne Smith’s courageous decision to speak out against domestic and family violence was life-changing. It set her on a completely different path to the one she had envisioned for herself, and while Sherynne’s journey to recovery is far from over, her story inspires everyone it touches.

Three years ago, Sherynne was living at Newcastle women’s refuge, Carrie’s Place. She had not long separated from her now ex-husband, to whom she had been married for three years. His relentless physical, psychological and verbal abuse compounded years of violence Sherynne had been exposed to as a young girl in the family home.

“I didn’t dare say anything; I was forced to pretend I was a happy wife,” Sherynne said. “One of the things that [domestic violence] perpetrators want is for us to remain silent because they hide their insidious behaviour behind closed doors. “The only way I could get help was to reach out to others.” Clothed in shame and disappointment that her new marriage had fallen apart, it took every ounce of strength Sherynne could muster to seek help from friends, family and local domestic violence services – but once she did, she never looked back. “I could no longer remain silent,” she said. Three years on, Sherynne suffers from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, depression and anxiety. She has good days, and notso-good days, but the good days

are slowly starting to outweigh the bad. “I have a lot to be grateful for,” she said. Sherynne now volunteers in the community to give back to those domestic violence services that got her back on her feet, like helping out with projects at local refuges. She continues to share her story as a means to bolster her recovery. “There was no one to speak up for me, so I share my story on behalf of all those people who can’t speak up,” she said. As a proud ambassador for White Ribbon Day 2016 – a 16-day national, anti-violence campaign that kicks off on 25 November – Sherynne will deliver talks at events in Newcastle and Lake Macquarie. She hopes to inspire others to speak out against domestic violence. - Georgia Osland

John Hunter Hospital’s HIV/AIDS Clinical Nurse Consultant, Pauline Dobson. Photo: Peter Stoop

Modern medicine paves way

da S a 3 te - ve De S th ce atu e m rd be ay r

Over the past 30 years, HIV/AIDS treatment has come so far that diagnosis is no longer a death sentence. Take it from Pauline Dobson, who has practiced as a HIV/AIDS Clinical Nurse Consultant at John Hunter Hospital since a specialised department opened in 1986. “If I got infected today, my life expectancy would be similar to someone who’s not

infected,” Ms Dobson said. “Previously, a diagnosis meant you had 18 months to four years left, maximum.” The first medicine to treat HIV/ AIDS – an immunodeficiency virus, spread via unprotected sex and sharing needles, which can lay dormant for years before it damages the immune system, leading to serious infections – was a

tablet, taken every four hours. Modern medicine has eliminated many of its side effects, and is more effective at lowering the risk of transmission, with once-daily tablets now on the market. Today, there are fewer hospital admissions for HIV/ AIDS, with most John Hunter Hospital patients receiving care on an outpatient basis. However, just because modern medicine has improved treatment and management of the disease, doesn’t mean we should put it out of our minds altogether, Ms Dobson says. This World Aids Day (Thursday 1 December), Ms Dobson wants the community to think about HIV/AIDS prevention and get tested if necessary. “There are still lots of people out there who have HIV/AIDS, some of whom may not know they have it,” she said. - Georgia Osland

On the path to safety Valentine residents can breathe a sigh of relief, with news of “imminent” repair works to the footpath in the suburb’s main street. Lake Macquarie mayor Kay Fraser said she had personally lodged a service request with the council’s construction and maintenance unit to repair the uneven footpath along Allambee Road. Newcastle Weekly reported earlier this month there had been a number of trips and falls involving pedestrians, which the Valentine Residents Association flagged with the council. An asphalt section of the footpath has been listed on the 2016/17 schedule to be replaced with concrete. Cr Fraser said it was likely this work would be completed by March or April next year.

Flood-proofing for Lake Mac Lake Macquarie Council has been awarded a grant, from the Office of Environment and Heritage, which will allow for the implementation of a new project to assist homeowners, in low-lying areas, to protect their properties against future flooding. The project will offer an incentive for voluntary house raising of up to $30,000 for at least three homes per annum over three years in low-lying areas around the foreshores of Lake Macquarie affected by lake flooding and sea level rise. Council will be working with eligible homeowners in low-lying areas to inform them of the availability of funding and how they can apply.

The state’s National Parks and Wildlife Service is set to lose more than 300 years of experience in over a dozen regional managers. Wallsend MP Sonia Hornery said the NSW government’s decision to cut six of the state’s 14 National Parks and Wildlife Service regions, and their managers, was concerning. “Areas such as the Blue Gum Hills Regional Park (Minmi) in my electorate will now be placed at risk in the coming fire season,” she said. “These people are charged with protecting New South Wales’ national parks but this government is crippling their ability to contain major bushfires by cutting jobs.”

Giving the gift of love For many, Christmas is synonymous with an abundance of food and gifts, but for some, it’s a struggle to make ends meet. To help those less fortunate, not-for-profit charity Food & Friendship, a ministry of Warners Bay Baptist Church, is assembling Christmas hampers

for the second year running – this time with more manpower. The charity, which sells low-cost grocery items to pensioners, Centrelink recipients and Health Care Card holders, has partnered with Pure Performance Sports Warners Bay to conduct a food drive, aptly

branded the Pure Love campaign. Last year, 20 Food & Friendship volunteers alone assembled 60, family-sized hampers and 20, smaller Christmas bags for lone pensioners. This year it’s shaping up to be bigger and better, with donations already piling in. “It just makes a huge difference [to those struggling]; they can breathe a sigh of relief knowing that there’s goodies to go around,” Food & Friendship office administrator Evette Griffiths said. “It’s not going to cover everything, but it’s a small gesture to say they are not forgotten.” Donations of non-perishable items such as canned fruit and vegetables, cereal, condiments and desserts, as well as personal care items including deodorant, soap and toothbrushes, are being accepted throughout November

and into December at the Food & Friendship shop and Pure Performance Sports. The hampers will be assembled during the first weekend of December, and distributed instore at Food & Friendship before 16 December, when the charity closes over the Christmas and New Year period. Those who wish to make a monetary donation can purchase Coles or Woolworths food vouchers to help pay for supplies for the hampers, or make a direct donation to: WBBC Food and Friendship, account number 100013000, BSB 704-922, reference: ‘hampers’. Friend & Friendship is located at 66 Queen Street, Warners Bay (open Monday, Thursday and Friday, 9am-2pm), while Pure Performance Sports is at 456 The Esplanade, Warners Bay. - Georgia Osland

the range of people who come on board to support the carnival – it’s just fantastic,” she said. “We started off with nine trees in 2010 and this year we have 16.” Charities nominated this year include Hunter Animal Watch, Legacy Australia, Guide Dogs NSW, St Vincent De Paul, Charlestown Girl Guides and more. Reverend Christine Sheppard said that the carnival was a great way of reminding the community of the true meaning of the season – giving. “This church is a loving community and an accepting community and we rejoice all together with the larger community as we journey towards Christmas and events like this are a great way to show that.” The carnival will run until Saturday 17 December. Hamilton Uniting Church is located at 150 Beaumont Street, Hamilton. -Stephen Bisset

Hamilton War memorial upgrade Parliamentary Secretary for the Hunter Scot MacDonald has announced $47,190 in funding to upgrade the war memorial at Gregson Park, Hamilton. “This funding will also go towards two new flagpoles, replacing existing floodlighting with solar powered lighting and replacing plaques,” Mr MacDonald said. Merewether-Hamilton RSL Sub Branch representative, Phil Winney said he was pleased with the generous funding announcement. “This is a key community asset with special significance and remembering Australia’s servicemen and women is all the more important as we continue to commemorate the Centenary of Anzac,” Mr Winney said.

Help us make Christmas brighter for children in need Newcastle Weekly is calling on the support of our loyal and valued readers as we launch our 2016 Christmas Toy Appeal in support of the Salvation Army. In the lead-up to Christmas, Newcastle Weekly will be accepting donations of toys, which will be passed on to the Salvos to brighten the holiday period for children in need throughout the Hunter. Christmas can be a heart-breaking time for vulnerable children in our region so, anything we

as a community can do to put some smiles on little faces is well worthwhile. Just the simple act of placing a small item under our tree could powerfully impact a child’s life this Christmas. Toys are needed for boys and girls of all ages. They can be left unwrapped and brought to the Newcastle Weekly office at 19 Person Street, Charlestown. We will be accepting donations until Friday 16 December. Our business hours are 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday.

In an effort to find forever homes for older dogs, RSPCA Hunter Shelter is offering a reduced adoption fee of $100 on all adult canines from Thursday 24 to Monday 28 November. The shelter currently has more than 50 adult dogs that desperately need loving homes. “$100 doesn’t even come close to covering these dogs’ treatment and care costs, but we want to do all we can to find each and every one of these wonderful dogs a forever home,” RSPCA Hunter Regional Manager Debbie Jaggers said.

Fill a bag for a good cause Member for Maitland and Shadow Minister for Domestic Violence Jenny Aitchison is urging the community to get behind Share the Dignity’s Christmas campaign It’s in the Bag. ‘It’s in the Bag’ is an initiative that encourages people to fill an old handbag they have at home with sanitary, beauty and hygiene products to be handed out as a special gift to women in need this Christmas. “This campaign provides sanitary products to homeless shelters and domestic violence refuges for women in need, which is usually in high demand over the Christmas period,” Ms Aitchison said. “For women fleeing violence, sanitary products often become luxuries.” The campaign runs until Saturday 3 December and Ms Aitchison’s electorate office (34 Church Street, Maitland) will be a collection point. For more information on the campaign and to access a list of recommend products to include in each handbag, visit sharethedignity.com.au

Candice brings it home again

Adamstown Heights’ Candice Sherriff was crowned Mrs Fitness World 2016. Photo: Jamie Wicks.

Newcastle’s own pageant star Candice Sherriff has put yet another feather in her cap. The Adamstown Heights mother-of-two took out the Mrs Fitness World title at the Mrs World Pageant 2016 in South Korea last month. While, overall, Mrs Sherriff missed out on a place in the top 10, she said she was happy to win the fitness division over 35 other entrants – some of whom were significantly younger than her. “I was pretty pleased with that; it’s nice to be acknowledged for all the hard work that goes into staying in shape,” she said. Mrs Sherriff is the current holder of the Mrs World Australia title, through which she will continue her charity work for MAQuest’s Teal Wings of Hope foundation, raising awareness of ovarian cancer. It’s a cause close to Mrs Sherriff’s heart, having lost her mother, Irene, to the disease. - Georgia Osland

Library fine amnesty Newcastle Region Library is offering to waive unpaid library fines in return for donations to help make Christmas a little brighter for our region’s less fortunate. Library members will be able to clear unpaid library fines by donating non-perishable food and toiletry items as Christmas presents for needy Newcastle residents. Five dollars for every non-perishable food item and $10 for every toiletry item will be cleared from library members’ overdue fines record. “It provides a chance for community members to give back to the community in time for Christmas and have overdue library fines waived,” Lord Mayor Nuatali Nelmes said. The Food For Five, Toiletries For Ten initiative runs until Monday 12 December 2016. Members interested in making donations should make them over the counter at their local branch.

KARMA CHAMELEONS I

f you were a child of the 1980s, chances are songs like Karma Chameleon, Do You Really Want to Hurt Me, I’ll Tumble For Ya and It’s A Miracle featured heavily in your musical upbringing. Well, the architects of those songs Culture Club - led by the gloriously androgynous front man Boy George - will be heading to Hope Estate to headline a show that will also feature some of the best Aussie 80s exports. Guitarist Roy Hay told Newcastle Weekly that, after a successful Oz

tour earlier this year, the decision to return was an easy one to make. “It’s funny, you don’t go somewhere for 15 years and your back twice in a year,” he said. “Our promoter said ‘why don’t you blokes come back and play some wineries’ and we thought that was a brilliant idea." Roy added that while punters could expect a 25+ song set off all the hits, he said there would be more than a few surprises thrown in. “Maybe George might want to

throw a bit more reggae in one night or, you know we’ve been losing great artists at an alarming rate in 2016, so there might be a few little tributes planned for some of those guys as well.” After hitting the stratosphere with their first album Kissing To Be Clever, Culture Club were at the forefront of 80s pop – thanks to a beguiling mix of pop, rock, reggae, Motown, northern soul and, of course Boy George’s larger than life persona.

time out Westbury’s Creating Cities a winner

MATTHEWS’ INTIMATE HUNTER DOUBLE HEADER

Hot on the heels of her recent Live at the Foreshore performance in Newcastle, Wendy Matthews is coming back to the Hunter for two shows this weekend – however, this time around, things might be a little bit more subdued. Having already won the hearts, minds and ears of Aussie audiences with her own formidable vocal style, Matthews is turning her attention

to, arguably, one of the greatest singers of all time - Billie Holiday -with these upcoming shows, based around her recent album Billie and Me. In the winter of 2012, Wendy went into the Stuart Piano Factory in Newcastle with Brendan St Ledger on piano and Greg Royal, stand-up bass. The trio emerged after two days with an album of live recordings and realised they had captured a long - loved but never delved - into side of Wendy’s music history. The circumstances they recorded in allows for an intimate and introspective translation of some classic and not so classic Billie Holiday songs, an iconic woman whose soul and music has long been admired. Catch Wendy Matthews at the Bradford Hotel, Rutherford on Friday 25 November and Lizotte’s Lambton on Saturday 26 November.

Novocastrian multimedia personality Marcus Westbury has taken out the recent Small Press Network Most Underrated Book of 2016 award for his book Creating Cities. The book, which charts the inception of his Renew Newcastle concept, was praised by the judging panel for its potential real - world applications. “As a broader guide to rethinking public policy, Creating Cities has the potential to influence the way humans engage with space in cities around the world. The real-world case study of Newcastle and Westbury’s thoughtful story makes this book about urban design and transformation inspiring, relevant and a delight to read,” the panel said in a statement.

The increase in prize money for 2017 will see the Muswellbrook Art Prize become the secondrichest art prize in regional Australia - second only to the Cossack Art Awards held in the Kimberly’s in Western Australia. “It is not about trying to award the biggest art prize in Australia but about attracting and acquiring for the Muswellbrook Shire Art Collection the best artworks being created in Australia today, because the Muswellbrook Collections, which include the extraordinary gift of the Max Watters Collection, are an invaluable resource for the Upper Hunter Region,” Mayor of Muswellbrook Martin Rush said. The 44th Muswellbrook Art Prize will be held at the Muswellbrook Regional Arts Centre in March 2017 with the opening night and announcement of the winners taking place in the evening of Saturday 11th March 2017.

Cstudios Art Gallery is housed in the beautiful old Bellevue Hotel building at 738 Hunter Street, Newcastle West. The site dates back to 1885 and, once inside, if you look up you can still view some of the original building. Owner, Jo Chilsolm-Ray has lovingly restored and renovated the interior, transforming the old pub into a purpose-built gallery and office space. “This has been a life-long dream for me and finally it has come to fruition,” Jo said. Before she started the gallery, Jo worked as an art teacher for more than 35 years, raised a family and established a family business with her partner. Her love of art, combined with her teaching and business experience have all contributed to the establishment of this destination gallery, which regularly holds workshops by artists and exhibits Hunter, Central Coast as well as Sydney and Melbourne-based artists. Currently exhibiting until Sunday 4 December is a retrospective of printmaking and paintings by local artist, Joyce Clulow. The exhibition spans a lifetime of work by the artist, which includes many different printmaking processes

FogHorn Brewhouse in Newcastle is the best spot in town for craft beer and American-inspired dishes. Photos: Peter Stoop.

As far as quirky, inner-city venues go, FogHorn Brewhouse, in Newcastle’s east end, is as unique as they come. The 250-seat, industrial-chic microbrewery and restaurant is set in an old, semiindustrial building that was once home to the Kloster Ford dealership. Its owners have kept its art deco façade in tact, and carried the industrial feel throughout the venue with exposed timber beams and hanging glass pendant lights. The main attraction is the craft beer, brewed on-site, 16 different types on tap, to be exact. Award-winning head brewer, Shawn Sherlock, who previously worked as Murrays Craft Brewing Co’s amber ale alchemist, certainly knows his way around the 1800-litre brewhouse apparatus. “I could talk about beer all day,” Shawn said. But it’s not just craft beer FogHorn specialises in. The venue is

The annual Christmas Twilight Market is on this Saturday 26 November at Maitland Regional Art Gallery from 3pm to 8pm. Local artist Trevor Dickinson will have news works featuring iconic Hunter landmarks for sale, but if this doesn’t tickle your fancy, there are plenty of stalls from which to pick up Christmas goodies.

Summer is quickly approaching – a time when gardens should be abundant in tomatoes, lettuce, cucumbers and capsicum. Don’t hesitate to plant silver beet, eggplant, corn and zucchini. If space is a problem, most summer vegetables can be grown in pots. Crops such as carrots, cucumbers and corn need garden space. The choice of tomatoes grows each year, adding new varieties to the ever popular Grosse Lisse and Sweet Bite. The newest arrival is ‘The Boss’ which is a large, juicy variety. Always hammer in the stake before planting and discourage fruit fly by mixing up a spreadable paste of Malathon and Vegemite to painat the stake. Which lettuce to grow?

Home ownership out of reach

Infographics courtesy of Hunter Research Foundation.

Despite record low-interest rates, home ownership is becoming further out of reach for firsthome buyers in the Hunter, new statistics show. The Hunter Research Foundation’s FHB Affordability Index, released, last week, as part of the foundation’s quarterly Hunter Region Economic Indicators report, shows a “dramatic worsening” of housing affordability in the Hunter since the early 2000s. “High house prices, combined with relatively stagnant wage growth, have offset the effects of record low-interest rates in the last two years,” Hunter Research Foundation Senior Research Fellow, Dr Anthea Bill, said. “If the recent pick-up in house price growth continues, affordability for firsthome buyers will remain a

generational challenge.” The report shows the average price of residential dwellings in the Hunter is $454,742 – up 5% from September 2015 to September 2016. The residential market has experienced significant growth, with housing approvals spiking above the state average. Non-residential building approvals have also skyrocketed, from $701 million to $1.35 billion total worth year-on-year. And while the Hunter’s unemployment rate has dropped from 7.1% in September 2015 to 5.6% in September 2016, wage growth on a national scale has been slow. Increasingly, part-time jobs are replacing full-time jobs, further affecting the income brackets of first-home buyers.

Nov 25 – Dec 1

PICK OF THE WEEK Madagascar

20,000 Days On Earth

Friday, 9GO!, 6pm, PG (2005) At New York’s Central Park Zoo, the star attractions are the quartet of excitable lion Alex (Ben Stiller), graceful hippo Gloria (Jada Pinkett-Smith), hypochondriac giraffe Melman (David Schwimmer) and depressed zebra Marty (Chris Rock), who long to return to the wild. The foursome get their chance to do just that after they are inadvertently shipped off to a Kenyan wildlife reserve. The humour is at its best whenever Borat’s Sacha Baron Cohen, as King Julien the lemur, chips in.

Friday

November 25 12pm News. 1.00 Recognition: PRIME7 (ch 6)

Sunday, ABC, 10pm, M (2014) Essential viewing for any Nick Cave fan. Presented as a day in the life of the charismatic rocker – his 20,000th, to be precise – it’s a work of fact-based fiction that ranges from sessions with a shrink (a real one, but not Cave’s usual one) to the stage of the Sydney Opera House, via writing sessions, lots of driving around (with intermittent backseat passengers including Kylie Minogue and Ray Winstone) and a visit to his personal archive. It makes for an intelligent, revealing and poetic insight into a magnetic man. 12pm Golf. World Cup. Day 2.

Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind

Saturday, SBS VLND, 8.30pm, M (2004) Jim Carrey is Joel, a shy guy who falls for the wild Clementine (Kate Winslet). We follow their relationship until the impulsive Clementine has all her memories related to Joel erased by a company called Lacuna. When Joel follows suit, he desperately tries to keep his memories of Clem hidden away. Do not miss.

Acting Store Manager Caitlin Magrath said Allan was great with customers.

An artist with a passion for graffiti art, he has turned our new Hamilton North bookshop into a modern work of art, complimented on by customers both young and old.

Allan Curtis volunteers at our Belmont store and is legally blind.

Jayden is one of the many local people we give work experience through the Work For The Dole program.

Meet our volunteers

Work For The Dole

Jayden’s completed six months of work experience, but continues to volunteer at our warehouse. Lifeline Hunter Central Coast engages approximately 45% of Newcastle’s Work For The Dole placements across administration, warehousing and retail stores. Our work experience gives people jobready skills, but we get so much back from their support and hard work.

Meet our new ambassador Nick Bowditch is Lifeline Hunter Central Coast’s new Ambassador. Nick is an entrepreneur, a social media thought-leader, an advisor and investor in start-ups, and a sought-after speaker. He also experiences mental illness.

“He is eager, well presented and very positive; just what we’re looking for,” she said. Allan has completed TAFE Allan Curtis serves a customer qualifications, but at Lifeline Belmont shop. getting a job has been difficult. He hopes his Lifeline experience will help him get a foot in the employment door. Allan said the best part of the work at Lifeline was learning new things and meeting people. “Before I started at Lifeline, I was spending more time alone, but now I’m in a routine and out of the house more. The work is satisfying and my life feels more balanced.” Holly Sutton joined Lifeline as a Telephone Crisis Supporter (TCS) in June 2013. The 23 year old from Wyoming is now a Supervisor and supports new TCSs on their first shifts. She also does face-to-face counselling at Lifeline two days a week, and has joined the team running the Anger Management Program on the Central Coast. “I love volunteering at Lifeline because it is a rewarding way to make a difference and support a wide range of people at a local and national level,” she said.

CEO Gillian Summers said he is great role model. Nick said aspects of his behaviour, that some potentially see as negative traits, make him a better entrepreneur. “I have the choice of having my mental illness define who I am, or not,” Nick said. “I prefer to look at the things that make me different as gifts rather than curses.” One of Nick’s first duties was as keynote speaker at Lifeline’s Central Coast Brass Blokes Awards. At the event, he donated proceeds from his new book, Reboot Your Thinking, to support Lifeline’s suicide prevention services.

stART Talking helps bereaved

World Suicide Prevention Day More than 100 people took part in a moving Out of the Shadows into the Light walk to mark World Suicide Prevention Day and our 50th anniversary. At the breakfast, staff from Singleton, Cessnock and Dungog high schools were acknowledged for participating in Lifeline’s local schoolALERT suicide-safer schools programme. Our beloved volunteer, Dennis Johnson, was awarded a national Lifeline award.

Survivors of Suicide (SOS) support groups For those who’ve had a family member or friend die by suicide. Port Stephens – fourth Monday at Tomaree Library from 7-9pm.

Six years ago, John and Cindy McCowan lost their 20-yearold son, Craig, to suicide.

Newcastle – first Wednesday at Lifeline, Islington from 7-9pm.

Cindy and John McCowan with Craig’s portrait

The couple says having portrait artists and Lifeline supporter, Kathie Bowtell, paint a picture of Craig helped their grief, more than they could imagine.

Phone 4940 2000. For Central Coast Group, contact 4320 7400.

stART Talking was developed by Kathie, who lost a grandfather and brother to suicide. She says the program brings families the joy of a portrait and the opportunity to talk about their loved one with an artist. Kathie is now supported by artists from Portrait Painters Hunter, who undergo Lifeline’s safeTALK training. One of the ways John remembers his son is by wearing Craig’s watch. So, instead of receiving a 20 year’s service watch from his employer, PWCS, he has donated the funds to Lifeline. PWCS staff are also helping John and Cindy organise a movie fundraiser for Lifeline. stART Talking wants to help other families’ members bereaved by suicide, If more than seven families come forward, there’s the opportunity to have the portraits sponsored isn an exhibition to raise funds for Lifeline as well as raise awareness about suicide. For more information, call Kathie on 0402 411 317.

Meet our unsung community heroes

Each year, we honour members of our community who, despite personal adversity, have found the strength to give to their community, through three local awards. The events also raised $30,000 for our lifesaving telephone and face-to-face counselling services. Congratulations to all nominees and thanks to the people who nominated them.

2016 Lower Hunter Steel Magnolia: Jodie Bell Jodie Bell

Jodie Bell is a Motor Neurone Disease (MND) warrior. In 2014, at the age of 32, she was diagnosed with MND and given two to five years to live. Despite this devastating news, the mum of two young children has been relentless in raising awareness and funds for MND to help find that elusive cure.

2016 Central Coast Brass Bloke: Jake Banks

Jodie said she didn’t really know what MND was when diagnosed. She’s retired from being a school teacher but has established a new class of supporters called “Team Jodie”, who help raise awareness about MND. Congratulations to the other finalists: Dianne Ball; Carolyn Bear; Carmel Kaczmar and Mary Maughan; Cory Newman (special mention); and Teigan Power (special mention). Special thanks to guest speaker, Channel 10 presenter and mental health advocate, Jessica Rowe AM, and emcee, NBN TV’s Natasha Beyersdorf.

2016 Upper Hunter Steel Magnolia: Sarah Dunn Sarah lost her son Harry, aged nine, in an accident which left her other son critically injured. In partnership with St Catherine’s College where Harry attended, she set about creating Harry’s Climb – a multi-level children’s climbing gym. Sarah regularly undertakes cycling rides to fundraise for Camp Quality, last year raising more than $14,000. Upper Hunter Steel Magnolia Sarah Dunn She also fundraises for Singleton second from right with Gillian Summers Family Support and Ronald McDonald and other finalists. House. When her friend, Sharon, was diagnosed with ovarian cancer, Sarah organised two events that raised more than $20,000 to support Sharon. Congratulations to the other finalists: Pauline Carringan (special mention); Kelly Moylan; and Chic (Anthea) Taylor. Special thanks to guest speaker, NBN TV presenter Natasha Beyersdorf.

Central Coast Brass Bloke Jake Banks with CEO Gillian Summers and Ambasador Nick Bowditch.

Twenty-two year old Jake Banks has not let cerebral palsy dampen his enthusiasm for his beloved Central Coast Mariners football team. From being a founding member, Jake has developed into an irreplaceable volunteer and ambassador for the club. As well as media liason and writing for the club, Jake attends weekly training sessions. He claps players off the field with a grin from ear to ear. Jake’s drive and enthusiasm for life is infectious and the players, staff and fans know Jake is a legend. Joining Jake’s grandparents, Denva and Arthur Banks, to support Jake at the event were the former Mariners’ Manager Laurie McKinna and current Mariners’ CEO Shaun Mielekamp. Congratulations to the other finalists: Bryce Scott and Greg Van Borssum. Thanks to guest speaker Nick Bowditch.

Chairman’s message This photo was taken during our Out of the Shadows into the Light Walk to mark World Suicide Prevention Day. For 50 years, Lifeline has helped those in our community in crisis.

Christmas puddings taste great – do good The Uniting Church’s Adamstown Pudding Kitchen has made special Lifeline Christmas Puddings for sale in Lifeline Hunter Central Coast’s retail stores. A third of the proceeds go to fund local Lifeline services. Reverend Rod Pattenden said pudding sale proceeds have always been used for the church’s support of local arts and social justice projects as well as overseas aid. “Our puddings are the best-tasting in the land and are lovingly cooked in the old fashioned way, in a purpose-built kitchen at the back of the church,” Reverend Pattenden said.

WIN A PUDDING How do you serve your pudding? Reverend Pattenden fries his in butter and serves with a dollop of clotted cream. Our services have expanded from phone crisis to include face-to-face counselling, world-class training and support groups. In our fast-paced world, the suicide emergency has not gone away. The latest statistics show 3027 Australians died from suicide in 2015 – more than double the national road toll. There has been a 25% increase in suicides between 2011 and 2015 and rates are at a 10-year high. We have only been able to continue for half a century because of the generous support of our volunteers and donors. Lifeline stores are also a valuable source of revenue that we put back into local services. We’ve made exciting changes to our stores to offer a higher quality, yet affordable, shopping experience. If you haven’t visited a store, or our Designer Depot or bookshop recently, check them out. The other way you can help us to save lives is by joining 84amate as an individual or by adding Lifeline to your workplace giving programs. I’d like to thank the members of our hard-working volunteer Board for their contribution to Lifeline and our community this year. Merry Christmas! - Rob Sams Lifeline Hunter Central Coast A/Chairman

Visit and like the Lifeline Hunter Central Coast Facebook page and tell us how you serve your pudding. From November 28, for three weeks, we’ll give one lucky entrant a week a free pudding!

Thanks for support • Hexham Bowling Club, Wallsend Diggers and the Wests Group gave generous support to our lifesaving local services through Clubs NSW Grants. • The NSW Government has provided us with $66,000 for faceto-face counselling and support groups to help local people affected by the recent Royal Commission hearings.
