Salvation Army Red Shield Appeal Breakfast

Over 500 people attended The Red Shield Appeal Breakfast launch at the BCEC Friday morning, where the Governor, Janette Young opened the appeal and Brisbane Lord Mayor, Adrian Schrinner and leader of the opposition, Peter Dutton were also in attendance. InQueensland contributor, Rebecca Levingston acted as emcee for the day and interviewed panellists Bridget Shirley, her mother, Melinda Edwards and The Salvation Army’s Bill Hunter. Bridget’s powerful story about her own plight with addiction set the tone for a discussion on drugs, alcohol and homelessness issues affecting many Queenslanders right now and how only with the support of the community raising funds and lending a hand are The Salvos able to continue their service to the community.
