    Mobile shower van for homeless hits Brisbane streets thanks to Orange Sky pair

    Nic Marchesi and Lucas Patchett were honoured as 2016 Young Australians of the Year for their efforts — which have now spread nationwide — to help Brisbane’s homeless.

    Known collectively as Orange Sky, they turned on the shower tap for the first time this morning, having built the van from scratch thanks to $100,000 from the Shine On Foundation.

    It means homeless people in Brisbane now have access to a free hot shower every day.


    The Brisbane-born duo now has 11 laundry vans working across Australia and hope to expand the shower concept if the trial proves successful.
