Eagles rally for depression cause

BEYONDBLUE: It is a cause close to his heart and one James Barley said he would always have a strong connection with, after his grandfather tragically took his own life a little more than a year ago.

James remembers his grandfather as one who, despite his depression, always lived life to the fullest.

The Emerald Eagles Football Club player said he was looking for a way to raise awareness of depression and related illnesses and came up with an Eagles-sponsored afternoon of charity lawn bowls set down for 12.30pm on Sunday, August 5.

"It's good for the community and good for the club," Barley said.

"Every bit we can give back, helps."

Tickets are $25, which covers a $5 green fee at the Emerald Bowls Club and a $20 beyondblue donation. A buffet dinner will also be available for a small additional charge.

Tickets can be bought on the day or beforehand by emailing james.barley90@gmail.com.
