Prahran Mission: Winter Breakfast Program
Written on the 6 June 2012On Tuesday last, together with the Minister for Health, the Honourable David Davis, and the member for Prahran in the Assembly, Clem Newton-Brown, I attended Prahran Mission's 21st annual winter breakfast program celebrating 21 years of feeding those in need. At the breakfast we heard the personal story of Harriet Dance and her experience of living with a mental illness. Not only did we hear her account of what she had to endure as she was growing up but we also heard her experiences as a young woman and as a writer. Her story is one of endurance, success and achievement. Prahran Mission has played a big part in her life, and that experience now enables Harriet to play such an important role within the organisation and give insight to many others.
