Pete Shmigel, Lifeline Australia Chief Executive Officer, said the money raised by the auction will go towards Lifeline’s much needed new text service.
“Sydney Airport will be instrumental in starting a national conversation, not only across their business internally but also with their own networks about suicide prevention,” Mr Shmigel said.
Clontarf Foundation Chief Executive Officer, Gerard Neesham, said the funds will help to equip Indigenous boys with education and leadership skills.
