I have pledged to choose Love over Hate to show people experiencing homelessness that they are not alone.

Support my 28km Long Walk Home to Help People in Crisis

On Friday 8 October 2021, I will be walking 28km in the shoes of a person living on our streets in the Long Walk Home.

Every week, a person sleeping rough on our streets has to walk 28km to find shelter or a place to sleep.

Please sponsor my challenge to support the most vulnerable people in our community.

Every step I take and every dollar you help us raise will deliver love, support and assistance to those in crisis. Thank you.

So far you helped deliver:


care packs


home-cooked meals


days crisis accommodation

…to people sleeping rough on our streets or in isolation at home.
