Creative hats of all varieties were part of the dress code at last Thursday night’s meeting of the Rotary Club of Narrabri, all to raise money for Australian Rotary Health.

Rotary clubs across the country hold a hat day in an effort to shine a light on mental illness in Australia.

The money raised on the day goes to research into helping those affected by depression, anxiety, schizophrenia and many other illnesses.

The hats worn by Rotarians and partners spanned many categories – sport, cultural, construction as well as other varieties.

Some stand-out headpieces were Liz Campbell with her hybrid pink cowgirl/tiara piece, Jocellin Jansson with her ‘JJ’s Renovations’ number, Mike Beale with his badged cap, Kedar Adhikari with his Nepalese number and Bruce Pyke with his Vegemite bucket hat.

Mental health clinician Rathi Ramnathan, of HealthWISE, was the guest speaker at the meeting.
