Shout out to our guides

Southbank resident Kevin Ekendahl may have lost the September federal election in Melbourne Ports, but that hasn’t stopped him working his ‘day job’, organising The Big Shout Out for Queensbridge Square in October.

The Big Shout Out is organised through the charity Mr Ekendahl works for, TRY Australia and Big Brothers Big Sisters.

The event will encourage all to celebrate mentors in their lives, with a giant blackboard available to the public to air messages of thanks.

Mr Ekendahl said he was looking forward to the event.

“We chose Southbank as the location to host The Big Shout Out as it has a high volume of both local Melburnians and tourists who either pass through to commute to work or use Southbank as a destination for entertainment,” Mr Ekendahl said.

“We’re hoping that people in Southbank and those passing through get an opportunity to ‘shout out’ to their mentor or positive role model and let them know what impact they’ve had in their lives,” he added.

The Big Shout Out will be at Queensbridge Square from 11am to 9pm on Wednesday, October 23.
