Shalom Catholic College
Join us for a special event with International Humanitarian and Global Peacemaker Moira Kelly http://www.moirakellyaustralia.com/
Lunch will be catered by The Waves and additional entertainment and fundraising activities will be ongoing.
Tickets will be available at $55pp or $35pp (discounted price is for aged pension and school students only). Tickets can be purchased from Bundy Tickets https://bundabergtickets.com.au/event/15th-bundaberg-ecumenical-lunch-helping-the-homeless-4446
All fundraising proceeds will go towards updating facilities to ensure homeless people have access to showers and washing / drying facilities, as well as conversation and connection with volunteers for further support and referral.
The 2017 Ecumenical Committee is underpinned by CentacareCQ as the auspicing body, and has additionally brought together enthusiastic representatives from the Bundaberg Housing & Homeless Forum, Churches, Local Government, Media, Local Business and Service Groups to help identify and implement projects that will have practical outcomes to those effected by homelessness in Bundaberg.
Every night there are more than 19,838 people experiencing homelessness in Queensland alone, that’s 1 in 200 people Australia-wide, so it was not difficult to facilitate a fundraising campaign that is “Helping the Homeless”.
