On Saturday 12 October 2019, our new Central and Northern Hospitaller Sean Parnell and Frances Booth AM presented Vice President of St Vincent de Paul, Jocelyn Cull, with 100 bags, filled with hygiene items for the homeless around Darwin.

The bags and their contents were funded and assembled by the Members of the Order in NT and are for the personal use for 50 men and 50 women. They contain toothbrushes, toothpaste, deodorant, as well as female hygiene items in the women’s packs and shaving kits for the men.

The packs will be distributed by members nearer Christmas.
