My sense of community spirit started when I was 15 and volunteered at my local Vinnies op shop. The one thing I remember, apart from the musty clothing smells, was the variety of people that walked through the door. They came from all walks of life, rich, poor and everyone in between.
I realised what a diverse and interesting bunch we humans are.
Community is very important to me. It’s where I’ve met the most interesting people and gained lifelong friendships.
