Locals sleep rough to help homeless Gold Coasters

CLOSE 4000 Gold Coasters are currently recognised as being homeless. It’s a fact the St Vincent de Paul Society wants to change.

Last night, local business and community leaders joined Vinnies representatives for the first ever Gold Coast community sleepout at TSS.

With nothing but the clothes on their back, a sleeping bag and a piece of cardboard, participants experienced a night of sleeping rough to raise much needed funds to help combat homelessness on the Gold Coast.


Among the participants was 102.9 Hot Tomato presenter Luke Bradnam and 1029er Trevor Butler.

Watch the video above to see how they handled roughing it for one night.
