$21000 donated by Jam in a Jar - Thanks to UNSW Kensington Colleges!

headspace Bondi Junction was delighted to receive the results of a year of fundraising by the UNSW Kensington Colleges charity committee on Wednesday.  An amazing $21,234 was raised by the committee in 2016, including through the major fundraising event, Jam In A Jar - an awesome music night at the Roundhouse at UNSW.  Thank you to Alice, Hamish, Alannah and Georgie and all the students at Kensington Colleges and UNSW for your passion, dedication and commitment.

Each year, a new group of college students are elected to the fundraising committee.  The Jam in a Jar event was started by the 2014 committee, including current National and Bondi Junction Youth Reference Group member Emma, whose passion kicked off the relationship between headspace and the colleges.  We are super excited to be working again with the 2017 committee, and look forward to a great event again later this year.
