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

My friend, Tim Seymour-Smith (city of Adelaide citizen of the year 2019), co-founded Cafe Outside The Square in November 2017, which is operated from the site where Vinnies feed the men from their homeless shelter each night. 

Tim runs the cafe with his business partner, Mike Chalmers, with all proceeds supporting the education and work placement of people who have experienced or are experiencing homelessness. Neither Tim or Mike are paid for running the cafe; they donate all their time for free and do their best to feed the homeless.

Up to 80 homeless people are fed from the cafe each day.

Through Tim I have learned about the challenges that homeless people face and how people doing benevolent acts and raising funds can really help.

To show my support for Tim and the cause, the least I can do is spend a night out in the middle of winter, to help raise funds for this most worthy endeavour. Any support you can give me in my quest will be very greatly appreciated - not just by me, but most importantly by the people who find themselves in need right now.
