Shorten turns fundraiser for Twentyman

AAP logoAAP 15/12/2016

Opposition Leader Bill Shorten is pitching in to help the Les Twentyman Foundation after thousands of donated books and gifts for the needy were destroyed by fire.

The foundation ran a back-to-school program in rooms above the Little Siagon Market in Footscray, but the supermarket was gutted by fire on Tuesday.

Mr Shorten, whose electorate borders the area, is organising a lunch to be held on Friday at Melbourne's Crown hotel for 100 guests, with all proceeds going to the foundation.
