An Evening with Brad Hogg, 30 May 2024

Australian cricketing legend Brad Hogg will join members of the local farming and business community in Moora for a special sundowner event that’s being held on Thursday 30th May 2024. 

As Grain Producers Australia’s (GPA) National Mental Health Ambassador, Brad’s visit is being timed to coincide with the end of this year’s seeding program for many local farmers and community members.

The Moora Chamber of Commerce is hosting the sundowner along with GPA, to give local community members an opportunity to support each other in this challenging period.

Chair, Julie Walsh, said the local community was very strong and resilient, and having Brad speak at the sundowner offers a great opportunity to take a break from work and catch up, to connect and de-stress, after a busy time.

“We’re looking forward to coming together for this event at the Moora Performing Arts Centre, to hear Brad Hogg speak about his personal and professional journey, and to share some valuable time connecting as a community together, after seeding is done,” she said.

“There is no cost for entry and some refreshments and light nibbles will be provided."

“We appreciate GPA’s support and their partners, to help bring Brad here for this gathering which gives everyone a good excuse to get together, after the hectic seeding period.”

GPA Chair, Barry Large, is also a grain and sheep producer in the local Moora community with his farm, Moorlands, located at nearby Miling.

"Many growers are facing a dry start again this season, after experiencing a tough year in 2023, where lack of rain had a major impact on grain production for many growers", he said.

“We know many farmers often respond to challenges by working harder, but this is not a sustainable approach when it comes to your mental health and this stress needs to be managed proactively by taking time away from work as well.”

“That’s why we’re putting on this event in Moora, so everyone can take a break from the farm, or the machinery shed, and come together for a sandwich and a chat. GPA is proud to be supporting our work with Brad Hogg and I’m especially looking forward to him joining members of the local farming and business community in Moora."

The event is being held at the Moora Performing Arts Centre on Thursday 30th May, from 5-8pm.
