Big Day Out-look: Pakenham to go all the way to the city

Huge NDIS supporters Outlook, based at Pakenham in Melbourne’s south east, are planning to make Monday 30 April huge as part of the NDIS Make it Real Melbourne rally.

Outlook will be holding a rally at the Pakenham Library from 9am on the morning of the 30 April before marching down the Main Street of Pakenham to the Pakenham Railway Station from where they will be catching trains to head to Melbourne’s Federation Square for the big rally at noon.

Tony Fitzgerald the CEO of Outlook highlighted the importance of the NDIS and the rally, telling Every Australian Counts that:

“We’re a wealthy country but have people living like they are in the third world – don’t tell me we can’t fix this problem.”

“This is the greatest reform since Medicare and we must tell all governments not to let this opportunity slip.”

Every Australian Count congratulates the Outlook team on their initiative and we look forward to seeing a big crew from Pakenham at Fed Square on the day.

Details of the Pakenham rally are:

9am – Pakenham Library Cnr John & Henry Street Pakenham.

Then march down Main Street to the Pakenham Railway Station to catch the train to Flinders Street for the rally at Federation Square.

Outlook will have a marquee at Federation Square on the day.
