Last week Arthur Moses SC participated in his 7th Vinnies CEO Sleepout in which leading business people and professionals raise awareness of homelessness by sleeping outside underneath the stars with only cardboard boxes to protect them from the cold night air.
In only a few days of fundraising, Arthur raised over $22,000. See his donation page here.
A note from Arthur:
My thanks to all who donated to the St Vincent de Paul Society’s raising of funds for its projects to assist the homeless. This was my seventh Vinnies sleep out representing the NSW Bar Association. The sleep out aims to raise awareness of the plight of the homeless and to raise funds for the important work that Vinnies undertakes to assist the homeless. I was joined this year by Shane Prince SC for his first sleep out, who also used his network to raise funds.
Regrettably, every winter we see homeless people, increasingly more women, sleeping in the area around the legal precinct. My colleagues at the NSW Bar, solicitors, the NSW judiciary and business leaders are always incredibly supportive as I ask/harass them for donations at this time of the year for this worthy cause. They have big hearts.
Pre registrations are already open for the 2023 Sleepout, find out more details here.
Well done Arthur!
Back to all
