Colin Wheeler wins 'Above and Beyond' award

Put forward by the Qld State office of St Vincent de Paul, this was in recognition for the 6 years of involvement with the Vinnies CEO Sleepout.

Colin had individually raised $47,000, but more importantly used his networks in our city to encourage other business leaders to participate and raise collectively over $1,800,000. All of this money raised is being spent on exciting projects here on the Coast for emergency accommodation for the city’s homeless. 60% of which are Domestic Violence victims, kids under 18 and those suffering mental health issues.
