Lifeline’s Stress Down Day was a huge success with over 200 sausage orders being placed.

The annual event is dedicated to reducing the burden of stress in the community.

Lifeline’s CEO Scott Hammond said for this year’s the annual barbecue they moved from the Town Square to the Westside Plaza.

“It’s been good, we have been getting great support,” he said. “It is a big day for us.”

Mr Hammond thanked Woolworths for letting them use the space in front of the business.

“It’s good to be in a public area and it’s under cover,” he said.

“It’s warmer than the Town Square during this time of year.”

Mr Hammond said the Lifeline staff, with the help of the Lions Club, were also out and about making snag deliveries.

There was a record number of sausages ordered - 221 in all.

“A few of the schools and the TAFE got involved with dressing up for the day as well,” Mr Hammond said.

“We had a surprising response where people just wanted to donate money.”

The money raised goes towards Lifeline’s Crisis Support.
