Join Bank of Melbourne and the Melbourne City Mission in helping to combat homelessness.
On Thursday 18 April, 1,500 people will be sleeping at the MCG to raise awareness and funds to combat homelessness in Victoria. Want to join us?
Bank of Melbourne is proud to sponsor Melbourne City Mission’s Sleep at the ‘G’ fundraising event. Bank staff, including Chief Executive Scott Tanner, will join the sleepover and get behind the initiative by raising additional funds.
We are delighted to support Melbourne City Mission so that it can continue to help young people get back on their feet by providing essential services to break the cycle of homelessness.
Please join us in supporting this important initiative.

Did you know…
On any given night there are up to 22,000 people in Victoria without a place to call home. What makes this statistic even more alarming is that almost half of these people are under the age of 25. Up to 6,000 people are forced to either ‘couch surf’ at a mate’s place or ‘sleep rough’ every night – under a bridge or on a park bench.
