The lockdown period has given us the opportunity to renovate the Magpie Nest Café.
Special thanks to the wonderful team from Simonds Homes who made it all happen and the generous support of Haymes Paints and Coles.
We were thrilled that the Victorian Premier Dan Andrews and Lord Mayor Sally Capp took time out of their busy schedules to launch the refit and confirm their commitment to helping homeless and vulnerable people in Melbourne.
The State Government has announced a $150 million funding package to accommodate over 2,000 homeless people in hotels around Melbourne and support new social housing initiatives.
Thank you to Lord Mayor Sally Capp and the City of Melbourne for providing essential funding and support for the café and recognising the important role it plays for vulnerable people in the CBD.
