We Are Thinking Of You - Victorians Rally for New South Wales

On Friday Fed Square used its Big Screen to send a message of support to the communities of New South Wales and promote giving through the major charities running appeals.


Fed Square in conjunction with Craig Lapsley, the Victorian Fire Services Commissioner, Fire Authorities, David Stirling, Chairman of the Marysville Chamber of Commerce, The Salvation Army and St Vincent de Paul Society charities came together to provide support to the communities of New South Wales.
