Support my Long Walk Home with Wayside Chapel

On Friday, 29 November, I will be participating in the Long Walk Home, the 28km night walk from Parramatta to Kings Cross. 

Every week, a person sleeping rough has to walk 28km looking for a place to lay their head at night. I will be walking to raise awareness and fundraise for Wayside Chapel. Wayside Chapel does an incredible job of serving the community of King Cross to stand alongside people experiencing homelessness. Wayside Chapel provides a safe community space for drop-in support, 7 days a week. Wayside Chapel provides meals, showers, clothing, in addition to practical assistance and support around matters relating to housing, health, finances and legal support.

Thank-you for your generous support to this incredibly worthwhile cause.
