Vinnies CEO Sleepout

Our CEO, James Telford participated in the Vinnies CEO Sleepout last month which helped raised a massive $2.7m for NSW.

Thank you to everyone who donated and the real heroes who are the volunteers from St Vinnies

A few words from James on why he took part:

"It’s hard to understand unless you’ve walked in another persons shoes…..

I’ve always been a firm believer that you learn a lot when you step outside your comfort zone. It’s something I challenge the team at GSA Insurance Brokers staff to do regularly. When things get challenging, force yourself to look at things from another perspective.

It’s easy to preach this attitude, but instead I’m leading by example by participating in the Vinnies CEO Sleepout Vinnies CEO Sleepout AU on the 17th June. This will be a new experience for me, but one which will provide perspective on what the homeless go through on a daily basis.

I have the luxury to go home to my family the following day, a reality which unfortunately not everyone has! I hope to do my bit to raise much needed funds to help support the homeless to make their lives a fraction easier."
