First Steps Count Manning Valley Walkathon



Peter King of Queens Square Chambers and the NSW Bar is walking in aid of First Steps Count and its new community centre in Taree. Peter will walk from the centre in Taree to Bondi Beach Icebergs for 7 days commencing on 12 December 2022.

Peter invites colleagues to make a tax deductible donation of $50, which works out at about $1.00 for every 10,000 steps for this walkathon. Peter is a patron and supporter of First Steps Count, a worthy community cause.

First Steps Count is a charity which helps alleviate social challenges in one of the most disadvantaged rural regions in Australia by advancing the lives of children, families and communities in the Manning Valley with an emphasis on early engagement and intervention for children aged 0 to 12 years.
