Members Statement - St Leonard's Uniting Church


Tuesday, 3 March 2020

Mr NEWBURY (Brighton) (13:40):

Last year St Leonard’s Uniting Church in Brighton launched a coffee cup challenge that encouraged putting aside $4 each week to raise funds for those suffering homelessness.

On Sunday the community collected donations and celebrated the last day before Lent. Over $10 000 was raised on the day alone.

The church plans to roll out the initiative across the State. Congratulations to Minister Kim Cain and parishioner Barry Schofield.
