DEAF guitarist Murray Mandel will play the guitar for people in towns across Australia for the next three years and he is doing it all for Lifeline.

Mr Mandel is in Young this week to play for local music lovers.

The classical guitar slinger, who has been deaf since birth, has been on tour raising money for Lifeline since March 2017 and will travel anticlockwise around the country, finishing in Canberra in 2020.

“I thought about starting my own charitable organisation when I retired from my job as a Microbiologist, but after i did some research i found Lifeline was a good charity to be involved with and to raise money for," he said.

"My goal is to reach out to as many people as possible and let them know of the good work Lifeline does.”
