Nic Marchesi and Lucas Patchett – Social Change Through Innovative Thinking
At just 22 years of age, Nic Marchesi and Lucas Patchett are on a mission to help Brisbanes homeless. The 2016 Young Australians of the Year co-founded their charitable venture, Orange Sky Laundry in 2014, creating the worlds first free mobile laundry service for the homeless. The duo is now trialling a shower van to provide homeless people with access to a free hot shower every day.
Join us at Business at Sunrise to hear Nic and Lucas talk about how they’re providing a platform for conversations, volunteering and opportunities for the homeless worldwide. They’ll discuss how they identified a disconnect between the homeless and the rest of the community and how they are connecting the two.
They currently have more than 650 volunteers providing this wonderful service at over 73 locations across Australia.
Nic and Lucas are an innovative and passionate duo, who are changing the way we connect with our homeless population. It’s an absolute pleasure to welcome Nic and Lucas to our Business at Sunrise.
