Participating in their 3rd Vinnies CEO Sleepout

One night isn't a lot, but it can make a whole lot of difference

As an Ambassador for the 2019 Vinnies CEO Sleepout, I am asking for your support. This year myself and fellow Directors have elected to unite and form “Team Woodards”, combining our collective resources so we can make a significant impact to care for those in need.

Last year, through our work and your kind donations, we managed to buy 2 new soup vans which service the inner city areas 365 days, every single night. One of our projects this year is to acquire another van for the Berwick area. For the past 9 years Vinnies has serviced this outer region of Melbourne feeding 67 people per night and providing over 10,000 meals p.a.

Our target is to raise $70,000.

To launch our campaign I will make an opening bid of $25,250.00 which represents my Director’s fees from and auction fees paid to date.

Over recent months Woodards people have seen first-hand what it’s like to “sleep rough”, to be dependent on food and supplies for everyday survival. Teaming with Vinnies and their local community services known as “conferences” we joined the “Vannies” on their nightly routes. This experience proved to be profound.

I look forward to embracing Melbourne’s winter and sleeping at the South Melbourne market for the night on the 20th June, 2019.

Your support by way of a donation would be greatly appreciated.  

Thank you in anticipation of your generosity.
