How Lincoln gave back

By Lincoln, 23

I’m lucky to have a really supportive community around me and I want to give something back.

Our family has been donating to Bill Crews for a few years now. We first heard about him through Nat Peeters, the radio news reporter. In 2021 we donated 1 item each month for 12 months. All our family and friends joined in. One month we donated 372 Up & Go Poppers. Another month 117 bags of pasta!

This week we heard you needed toiletries. My mum donated conditioner and toothbrushes, my stepdad gave deodorant and soap and I bought nappies.

My support worker Josh came with me to make the donation. Every time I visit Bill Crews I feel hope for our city. It’s a place full of smiles and kindness.
I’m glad I’ve had the chance to experience the Bill Crews Foundation it’s a great place.
