VOLUNTEER CATCH UP!
On Sunday afternoon, Team Despi volunteers will be getting together to connect with one another, meet their volunteer coordinators and learn what we need to do in order to win!
Come on down! We'll be at 61 Benton's Road from 4-5pm on Sunday. Bring your family and friends!
Not all volunteering involves talking to people on the street or at their front door!
We need letterboxers, phone-bankers, minders, admin folks, and plenty more! So if you want to join the movement (and join our Slack!) please click on the link below and choose the roles you can help with.
If you know of any businesses, homes or properties that might like a corflute, sign or flyer to display, let us know! We're also looking for people to ask businesses and homes if they'll display a Despi sign!
If you're keen to jump on board and drop some flyers when you're running, walking your dog or just strolling the neighbourhood, let us know!
We need an army to take us to Canberra, so join us on the front lines!
Rosebud door knocking Thursday 24rd March, Rosebud

Despi will be meeting with Sorrento locals and small business owners to discuss their concerns both locally and federally. Thus far, we've found that folks are very concerned with housing and staff shortages, so we will be sure to push for community-based solutions to these issues.
