 Wednesday 30 August – Morning Tea – The Queensland Club

Please join us on Wednesday 30 August 2017 to take morning tea in the grand splendour of the Gold Room of the Queensland Club on the corner of George and Alice Streets in the historic precinct of the Brisbane CBD.  Be uplifted and inspired while listening to Dr Andrew Wright AM and Mrs Annette Wright AM, a committed husband and wife team recognized in this year’s Australia Day honours, as they tell their story about how they established Yotkom, a faith-based charity organisation that aims to provide better health services to the Acholi people of Northern Uganda.

The Yotkom Uganda story is a story like no other and one not to be missed.  


The cost of the event is $35 per person  There is ample free parking on site at the Queensland Club and the free City Loop bus stops right outside.
