What does this organisation do?

The St Vincent De Paul Society assist people in need and help to combat social injustice across Australia. Their vision is to be recognised as a caring charity assisting those in need by respecting their dignity, sharing hope and encouraging them to take control of their own destiny.


What tasks did you assist with?

My main contribution to this organisation was by participating in the Cairns Vinnies Community Sleepout. This was to help raise funds and awareness for homelessness in the Cairns region. The campaign was so successful that they were able to furnish the center with the best mattress for back pain in a few of their rooms.


What was a fun fact about your day / the organisation?

We played card games and old board games that were drawn on cardboard, using pennies as the game’s pieces.
