ACL’s Northern Territory Director (also Director for Qld), Wendy Francis, spent last week in Darwin and Palmerston.

“It was great to meet with around 60 of our supporters on Friday night at Marrara Christian College for dinner and conversation,” said Wendy. “There were also many opportunities through the week to connect with Members of the Legislative Assembly who were very welcoming and interested in our work.”
