The Big Ball – in support of Rural Change

Looking an excuse to get out and have some fun while raising funds for a good cause? Why not dust off your ball gown or tuxedo and head along to The Big Ball at Lincoln in June and support rural mental health.

Recognising our sector is stronger together, The Big Ball is a joint effort between Future Farmers NZ and Rural Change in collaboration with Future Foresters, Young Fish, The Food and Fibre Youth Network, and the Tasman and Pendarves Young Farmers groups.

The purpose behind the event is to bring unity and connection between youth whilst raising awareness for rural mental health.

Suicide in rural New Zealand is higher than any other demographic, having a lasting ripple effect throughout a community – especially with our young people, who are often the largest statistic. Meeting and connecting to others can be challenging for rural professionals, foresters, fishers, and farmers , which is why events like this are fundamental.

Prizes and special guests to be announced! This event is not one to be missed. Tickets coming very soon…
