Join us at the opening event for the Thomas Kelly Youth Foundation, which was established following the death of our son Thomas in July 2012.
Australians have had enough of turning on their
television sets every weekend to hear about alcohol-fuelled street violence on
our streets. The situation is threatening the right of every Australian to walk
down the streets of their cities
for fear of becoming a victim of this violence.
It's time as a community that we collectively come
together and say "Never Again".
The funds raised by your generous support will assist the Foundation in making our streets safer and preventing alcohol-fuelled violence in our community.
