CONTACT stalwarts settle in for Exercise Stone Pillow

Pictured above is Major Darryl Kelly, long-time contributor of the “Just Soldiers” series in CONTACT magazine, who took up the Exercise Stone Pillow challenge sent out by CONTACT.

Wounded Heroes defence charity has brought forward its major fundraiser – Exercise Stone Pillow 2020 – to cope with a major call on its services in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic.

CONTACT embraced the initiative and pledged to participate, by registering for Exercise Stone Pillow, HERE – and inviting CONTACT fans to join me – not on my lawn, but your own.

Since we can’t go to a Dawn Service this year, what better way to ‘do’ our own ANZAC Day Dawn Service by sleeping outside, waking up with the dawn, reflecting on the service and sacrifice of our fallen heroes – AND doing something tangible and real for those who did come home but are doing it tough, especially this year.

If anyone else in the CONTACT family took up the challenge, please send me a photo to add here (tomorrow, because I’m in bed now 😉 ).
