Vinnies Sleepout for Homelessness

Tonight St Columba’s parent Catherine Stokes (Andrew Year 6, Emma Year 3) will be sleeping in her car as part of the Vinnies CEO Sleepout to raise money for people experiencing homelessness.


More than 116,000 people in Australia don’t have a safe and secure place to live, including an increasing number of young people and older women.


The Vinnies CEO Sleepout raises money for crisis accommodation, food, healthcare, counselling, education, employment, and support to find a permanent home for thousands of people across the country.


If you'd like to make a donation the details are below. Thank you.
