Winter Sleepout

7 July 2014 | General Interest

TCC Young Vinnies are preparing for a cold weekend at the end of July. More than 100 students and staff have registered to take part in the Annual Winter Sleepout where they will understand a little better the conditions our homeless face. Alex Oakes, Emily Cassar and Emily O'Connor were interviewed last week by Wyndham Star Weekly reporter Laura Michell, and they spoke to her about the activities being planned for the evening. Activities will include shelter-building and trivia competitions, apart from the all important soup van. Social Justice Co-ordinator Joanna Grujovski said the students would also have the opportunity to listen to guest speakers from St. Vinnies and also from someone who had spent time living on the streets. Staff are also joining in to raise money for the homeless.
