Homelessness is a growing concern in our community.
There are more than 105,000 Australians who find themselves homeless each night with just under half of these being women and a quarter being under the age of 18.
If you want to help, join the Vinnies Corporate and Community Sleepout and experience what it is like to be homeless for a night.
Vinnies provides support to thousands of homeless people every night and they’re attempting to raise $50,000 for the cause.
You can register yourself or a team and start fundraising now – with all the funds going towards homeless services right here in the Townsville region.
There’ll also be a special guest appearance from Timomatic!
It’s happening this Friday the 18th August from 7pm at Tony Ireland Stadium in Condon.
Make sure to pack your warm clothes, sleeping bag and blankets, basic toiletries and bring along good sense of humour.
