I’ve lived in this city now for over 16 years. It feels like home to me.

I’ve seen Canberra change in that time, mainly for the better.

This city isn’t perfect.  It’s a tough place to live if you don’t have a lot of money.

We have a myriad of charity organisations looking out for those people and most of them fall under the umbrella of Hands Across Canberra.

If you want to give money to charity and be damn sure that a. it’s going to stay in this town and b. it’s going to help people who really need it, then Hands Across Canberra fits the bill.

Peter Gordon is the CEO of Hands Across Canberra.
