Bickley Hillbillies Men’s Breakfast puts support on the menu

MEN have been sharing their stories at the monthly Bickley Hillbillies Men’s Breakfast for the past two years.

Belmont resident Joe Macri started the event after a friend encouraged him to attend a men’s weekend retreat run by American organisation The Crucible Project at a time when he was struggling and felt alone in his life.

“I wanted to create a more regular, local event, where men felt they could share their stories, where they could show emotions and know they had a community to support them, no matter what their burden was, from not being able to pay a bill to not coping with a divorce,” Mr Macri said.

“I’ve known so many men who had incredible stories to tell and I was tired of waiting until their funeral to hear about them.”

The next Men’s Breakfast will be held Sunday, July 2, at the Seventh-day Adventist Hall in Bickley.
