RURAL FOCUS | Hogg ready to host Moora social sundowner

Grain Producers Australia's mental health ambassador and cricketing legend Brad Hogg spoke to Triple M's Rural Focus as he prepared to headline a community sundowner in Western Australia's northern wheatbelt town of Moora.

The free event was designed to give farmers and the local community an opportunity to take a break from work, connect and de-stress after a busy seeding period. 

Brad said he was looking forward to heading to Moora and sharing an evening with the people of Moora.

"We're in for hopefully a little bit of fun and entertainment, but at the end of the day this is about bringing the local farmers and the community together to have a chat about what is going on in the world and around that region," he said.

"A lot of farmers at the moment are looking for rain, they've had a tough time over the past couple of years and

we want to make sure people can get to the event and have a chat and leave with a bit of a smile on their face and be ready for what's coming in the future."

Brad’s role as GPA’s Health Ambassador allows him to visit regional communities throughout Australia, to share important messages which help to raise greater awareness about the importance of mental health, and to reduce stigmas.   


Last year, about 20 different community events were held across the nation, shared with GPA’s State Members, and other event partners. These local events are also supported professionally by members of Rural Aid’s Mental Health and Wellbeing Team.
