PCYC MT GRAVATT BREAKFAST OF CHAMPIONS: WORKING TOGETHER TO IMPROVE OUR COMMUNITY
Members of local police, local school representatives, local community organisations and groups, local business owners, and local council and government representatives today attended the second annual Breakfast of Champions run by PCYC Mt Gravatt.

“The annual Breakfast of Champions is PCYC’s gateway to connect with the decision makers in the community who have the valuable insights and ability to action local solutions,” PCYC Mt Gravatt branch manager Sergeant Gary Penny said.

Sgt Penny posed two questions for attendees:

1. What are the risks and challenges facing the community and those you represent? 

2. What local solutions do you see to overcoming those challenges, and how can we work together to realise them?  

“We are very fortunate at Mt Gravatt to have the support of so many influential members of the community who we can work with collaboratively to develop some achievable outcomes,” Sgt Penny said.

“This morning we’ve had some very positive discussions involving a wide range of topics, some of which we can action through the PCYC with the input and ongoing support of our community partners.”

Federal Member for Bonner, Ross Vasta, said his group discussion had been extremely productive, and that he appreciated the chance to connect with influential members of the community.

“Events like these are a fantastic way to hear about the issues our community faces, to work together on long-lasting solutions, and to establish and strengthen connections in the community so that we can continue to engage in future on these issues,” Mr Vasta said.

Mr Vasta said key issues he had discussed with attendees today included social disconnection experienced by young and elderly people, local crime, and youth unemployment.

“I look forward to working with the fantastic local representatives who came along today and together helping make the Mt Gravatt community an even better place to live, work, study, and volunteer,” Mr Vasta said.
