Walk a mile in my boots

If you walk the CBD, you can learn to recognise the places where you will see a scrunched blanket or two. That says someone slept here last night, and hopes to return for another night.

If you keep an eye on your fellow passersby, (especially as the day draws to a close) you can learn to recognise that this person has nowhere to sleep; and maybe hasn’t eaten yet today.

Opened in 1954, and still offering hope, kindness, a meal, and much more, is the Hutt Street Centre.

Tomorrow is the ‘Walk a Mile in My Boots’ pre-breakfast hike to raise both funds and awareness about the misery of homelessness.

Danielle Bayard join Tim Brunero in the studio to talk about the hike.
