Homeless for a Night Sleepout
Members of the PT Team slept out on the streets of Toowoomba (during winter!!) as part of the Homeless for a Night sleepout, raising awareness of homelessness within our community as well as much needed funds for the Basement Soup Kitchen.
Our team raised a whopping $2,285, smashing our target of $1,200!
Now more than ever, the Basement Soup Kitchen needs help to provide assistance and support to the growing number of people experiencing homelessness and the many men, women and children who have been negatively impacted by COVID-19 and are struggling to pay their rent or put food on the table.
It’s not too late to donate! To support this very worthy cause, visit https://homelessforaweek.com.au/sleepout/participants/power-tynan/
Congratulations to Katherine Nguyen of our Toowoomba office and her partner Andrew, who welcome little Vincent on 8th September.
Flex Your True Colours
Members of the PT team recently donated blood as part of the Australian Red Cross Lifeblood True Colours campaign.
Six Aussie artists have created a new range of bandages for donors to wear post-donation.
With unique designs in a range of colours, these bandages were available to anyone who donated at Lifeblood donor centres until the end of November 2020.
With more than 4,400 donations required every day, the need for blood never stops.
To book a donation appointment, or for more information about the campaign, please visit https://www.donateblood.com.au/true-colours
