On Saturday 7 September 2013 I was pleased to join the St Giles "walk with me" in Hobart as a special guest. After a bit of a rainy and windy start to the day, the sun came out and the weather was perfect for a bit of a stroll, walk or push around Salamanca. The Navy band leading the way was just terrific and added to the fun atmoshphere. It was great to see so many bright cheerful smiles and one of the highlights would have to have been the dance performance proudly presented by the 'Brightstars'!
Well done to the event organisers who had just the week before, run a similar successful event in Launceston. A big thank you to friends and family who sponsored my or joined in the walk . The Hobart event raised more than $6,000!
St Giles is an organisation that I am particularly please to support. Their
ethos of 'whatever it takes to make a positive difference' is inspirational and
appreciated by the many families and individuals who are supported by St
Giles each year.
