Legend of league a guest of honour

QUEENSLAND State of Origin and Broncos legend Shane Webcke is the guest speaker at Ipswich men's awareness group Swich ON luncheon tomorrow.

The group is holding a charity day at the Ipswich Turf Club, with the proceeds going to beyondblue.

Sports psychologist Jeanelle Gibson will also be a guest speaker on the day.

Swich ON director Grant Lowe said Mr Webcke was a timely guest given the State of Origin decider held last night.

He said the group was steadily attracting members, which now number more than 70.

"It seems to be popular so far. It's obviously working and we are trying to get a speaker from a different sport next time," he said.

Mr Lowe said the majority of the members were in their 30s, and the chance to give something back in their own way had struck the right chord within the Ipswich community. About 160 are expected to attend the lunch.

For more information about the day and Swich ON, contact Mr Lowe on 0408 069 608.
