MURRAY Mandel has arrived in Ballarat as part of his three year Australia-wide journey to raise the profile of Lifeline.
Mandel, 64, who was born profoundly deaf, will be playing his classical guitar at Stockland Woolworths today, tomorrow and Saturday as he looks to build on the already more than $35,000 he has raised for the crisis support and intervention service.
His tour is taking in shopping centres, malls and markets in 150 different towns across Australia with a goal to wrap up in March 2020.
Mandel, said he was constantly amazed at the support he had received during his tour as he looks to raise as much money as he can for the service.
“I’m hoping that the passers-by and public will find my live background soothing classical guitar music enjoyable,” he said. “Lifeline does such a wonderful and important job, I wanted to do anything I could to support them.”
Murray Mandel will play at Stockland Woolworths from 10am-2pm until Saturday.
