$10,000 for homelessness

Jun 21, 2019 | News

It was a dark and stormy night in Melbourne on June 20 … but I am delighted to say we raised $10,000 for the Vinnies CEO Sleepout and plenty of awareness for the problem of homelessness.

A huge THANK YOU to all who made donations and spread the word –  in particular my cross bench colleagues, members of the Taxi industry, and my mates and family.

Next step? Our parliamentary inquiry into homelessness. 

Let’s keep the wheels turning on this issue.
