Staff from three local businesses are pushing for better mental health across the community by registering teams in the Push-Up Challenge 2022. The team members from the Australian Rail Track Corporation (ARTC), Newcastle Coal Infrastructure Group (NCIG) and Regional Australia Bank will attempt to complete 3,139 push-ups over 24 days to raise funds for Lifeline Hunter….
Lifeline was founded by the Reverend Alan Walker at Methodist Central Mission in Sydney in 1963. Since then, Lifeline services have been established around Australia and in many parts of the world.
Lifeline Newcastle & Hunter began in 1966 when Reverend John Chegwidden was awakened by a distressed telephone call from a man wanting to know if there was a Lifeline service operating in the region.
Over the years, Lifeline Newcastle & Hunter has expanded its operations from the traditional telephone crisis support service to include a range of services to relieve the stress and pain of the people of Newcastle & Hunter.
