R U OK?Day Blender Bender

Blender Bender, Campbelltown Mall, NSW

Charter Hall Retail shopping centres and Boost Juice have unleashed the ‘Blender Bender’ – a dynamic event raising funds and awareness for better mental health support.

Over a fun filled three-day event, kickstarting on R U OK?Day, Thursday 14th September, the Blender Bender was an exciting initiative which blended fitness, fun, and charity support into one.

Charter Hall’s Retail Marketing Manager, Anastasia O’Hara, said: “With mental health challenges on the rise and impacting Australians nationwide, Charter Hall was on a mission through the Blender Bender initiative to help those in need. Teaming up with tenant customer Boost Juice as well as R U OK? and ReachOut, Charter Hall strived to nurture a stronger sense of belonging in our communities. Assisting in raising awareness of mental health challenges, igniting positive conversations and creating a meaningful difference in local communities.” 

Six Charter Hall shopping centres across NSW invited customers to get involved by jumping on a bike to raise funds and blend a smoothie at the same time. The campaign saw 227 shoppers engaged, raising more than $3,450 in donations.

R U OK? is a not-for-profit organisation that encourages people to have conversations that can help others through difficult times in their lives. By asking the question, “Are you OK?” and genuinely listening, individuals can provide support and potentially connect someone in need to appropriate resources or professional help.

ReachOut is the leading online mental health service in Australia supporting young people during tough times. Anonymous, free and 100% online, ReachOut has been designed specifically for – and with – young people.

Participating shopping centres included Bass Hill Plaza, Bateau Bay Square, Campbelltown Mall, Orange Central Square, Rockdale Plaza and Salamander Bay Square.
