Make a donation

Help us answer more calls and provide suicide prevention and crisis support services to all Australians by making a donation today.



By volunteering for Lifeline not only will you be making a difference to the lives of other Australians who use the Lifeline services, but you’ll also be enriching your own life.

It takes a lot of dedicated people to provide Lifeline's telephone crisis support services 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, across Australia. Lifeline Canberra relies on support from the community to answer the crisis support line, raise funds and run the iconic Bookfair events.


Online Bookstore

Lifeline Canberra earns a major part of its funding by selling thousands of donated items at our three Bookfairs. We offer a wide range of fiction and non-fiction books for all ages, as well as magazines and pamphlets, comic books and atlases, records, CDs and DVDs, games and puzzles.

A limited selection of our rarer, more valuable or collectable items is available for purchase from our online bookstore catalogue.

2017 Lifeline Canberra Gala

Posted in Past Events, Gala Ball

presented by Audi Centre Canberra

Words cannot express how grateful we are for the support shown to our organisation at the 2017 Summer Nights Gala, held at the National Arboretum on Friday, 24 February. We are truly blessed to be surrounded by such a caring, passionate community.

The sell-out event was the first of its kind at the stunning National Arboretum and we welcomed over 300 guests on the night. Journalist, author and former national rugby player, Peter FitzSimons, kindly donated his time, experience and wit to host the event. Our entertainment for the evening, international hit sensation, Boys in the Band, were kindly sponsored by SMA Productions and Aquis Entertainment.

Guests had the opportunity to meet Australian Olympians including, Melissa Breen, Marianna Tolo, Michelle Heyman and Matt Beckenham. Presenting partner, Richard Rolfe OAM of Audi Centre Canberra presented our champions with a special Cross of Valour coin, with help from Lifeline Canberra supporter, Allan Sparkes CV VA.

Our Director of Service Delivery, Mandy Larsson, spoke passionately about her experience answering the crisis support line - we should have had tissues on the tables for this special presentation! Our auctioneer for the evening, Richard Luton, spoke bravely about his personal experiences and why he was so proud to donate his time for the event.

Everyone was shown a world with Lifeline, and without - and I think we can all agree that Lifeline Canberra is an organisation like no other! We could not continue our life-saving work without the support of our incredible volunteers, sponsors and community! Thank you.
