Sydney Lockout laws here to stay - Mike Baird

BOTTLE shops across the state will be forced to continue closing at 10pm, with Premier Mike Baird adamant the ­restriction will not be removed following a two-year review of NSW’s mandatory lockout laws next month. 

National Party MPs had hoped the restriction could be loosened in the bush, but the Premier is understood to be of the view all the alcohol restrictions put in place by his predecessor Barry O’Farrell should remain intact.

Mr Baird’s stance means all current lockout and drinks ­restrictions in the Sydney CBD and Kings Cross are expected to remain in place long term.

Generosity of the city

Generosity of the city

The Thomas Kelly Youth Foundation was invited to present at a fundraiser in Sydney on Tuesday 10th March 2015.

Along with three other charities, all of whom are doing amazing work to make the world a better place.  We were each given 6-minutes plus 6-minutes Q&A to get our message across to the audience.

The people in the room that night dug deep and donated a total amount of $212,000 to the four charities.  None of us could believe the total generosity of the human spirit in the room that night.

Blown away.  Faith restored in humanity.  Thank you to all of the people who attended that night.
