To celebrate National Volunteer Week (Monday 15 to Sunday 21 May), Australian of the Year award winner - WA State Recipient Local Hero 2022, Craig Hollywood is set to give a talk at Boya Community Centre at 9am on Friday 19 May.

Shire of Mundaring residents are invited to come and listen to an inspiring talk about The Power of Conversations, Positive Connections and Collaboration.

Craig is the founder of Short Back and Sidewalks - a social impact movement providing free haircuts and conversations with some of Australia’s most vulnerable people.

Established in a car park in Perth in 2015, the movement now operates across the continent and continues to positively impact people’s lives.

Shire President James Martin said the Shire was honoured to host Craig Hollywood and encouraged residents to hear his inspirational talk.

“Craig is said to be an engaging and charismatic speaker who talks from the heart,” he said.

“His social impact movement started as an idea and has grown into a volunteer-led movement that’s positively impacted the lives of over 10,000 people in need across Australia.

“This motivational talk comes at a poignant time in our society where many people across Australia are experiencing pressures from inflation and the country is facing a homelessness crisis.

“I encourage our residents, in particular our volunteers, to come along to hear about how the simple act of giving a free haircut and having a chat is inspiring the next generation of giving across the country and beyond.”

The event will also feature a Q and A volunteer panel, with morning tea also provided.

Bookings are essential via Eventbrite.

Craig Hollywood appears by arrangement with Saxton Speakers Bureau.

This event is proudly supported by Lotterywest and Volunteering WA through the National Volunteer Week Grant 2023.
