On a cold winter’s night in June, what could be better than some warm soup, a sausage sizzle and some hot coffee?

Perhaps a free beanie and scarf?

The South Burnett Suicide Prevention committee put on its second annual Winter Warmers event in the Kingaroy Town Hall Forecourt on Friday evening.

There were raffle tickets, childen’s activities and, of course, the free winter warmers mentioned above.

To top it all off, there was also a free concert tossed in by country singer and 2009 Toyota Starmaker winner Liam Brew, just back in Australia after playing at Nashville.

Liam also brought along his dad, Jason, to enjoy the show.

In line with the mental health theme, handouts were available from groups such as Beyond Blue, Lifeline, SANE Australia and Centacare.

Footnote: The beanies, scarves and crocheted blankets were donated by a number of local groups, including Angel Knitters, and various individuals.
