Calling all bros

Following on from Father’s Day, we’re looking to recruit more male volunteers.

In particular, we’re appealing for men aged 40+ who like classic and Aussie rock, science and politics. If you happen to live within the Eastern Suburbs, the Shire or Lower North Shore, that's an added bonus.

If you are reading this and you know of a male who would make an awesome volunteer, please inform them of our service. We’re calling on brothers, dads, uncles, sons, granddads, colleagues - we want to hear from them!

Bring your dad to Zoom

Also, don’t forget to join us later tonight (7/9) for our Father’s Day Zoom.

Taking place at 7:30pm, we invite buddies to bring their dads to Zoom, or if he can’t make it, come and tell us a story about your old man.
