Mr HIBBINS — I attended the launch of the Prahran Mission winter breakfast in support of the great work Prahran Mission does for those in need. At the breakfast we heard from a volunteer who detailed how the Voices Vic program for people who live with hearing voices had changed her life and made her proud to be part of the hearing voices community. We also heard from Kevin Sheedy, who recalled his days growing up in Prahran and the challenges he faced as a pioneering coach for Essendon. Thanks to all at Prahran Mission, especially the caterers for the morning. Go Bombers!
