First National chief executive Ray Ellis is on a 'Campervan Dash' to raise awareness for Kids Helpline.
"Across Australia, every First National Real Estate office sponsors Kids Helpline," Mr Ellis said.
The helpline offers confidential guidance for problems such as cyber-bullying, depression, homelessness, mental health or suicidal thoughts.
It's a free, 24/seven phone and online counselling service for young people aged five to 25 that has responded to more than eight million contacts over the past 28 years.
Every 90 seconds, someone's son or daughter, grandchild, niece, nephew, neighbour or friend gets in contact with Kids Helpline via its free call number 1800 55 1800 or web chat service.
"With the ongoing bushfires crisis, the Kids Helpline is there to offer support to kids who are going through tough times," Mr Ellis said. "We want to make sure that Kids Helpline has the support it needs to respond to more calls than ever before, because all children and young people deserve to be heard."
Mr Ellis travelled to Goulburn on Monday, receiving a donation of $2500 to the helpline from the Goulburn Invitational Charity Golf Day.
Mayor Bob Kirk, staff from Goulburn Mulwaree Council, Mission Australia and First National were a few of those present on the occasion.
Mr Ellis started from Bright, Victoria on January 8 and has stopped at key locations in support of fundraising initiatives for the Kids Helpline. He finished the 'Dash' in Yarrawonga in Victoria on January 14.
In 2019, First National Real Estate donated close to $200,000 in sponsorship funds to support Kids Helpline.
