In 2014 Nic Marchesi and Lucas Patchett had the crazy idea of putting a washing machine and dryer in the back of a van to offer a free laundry service to those doing it tough in Brisbane. Well, seven years later that initial idea has evolved into an amazing organisation called Orange Sky and the two-man band has grown into a team of sixty-plus employees and more than 3,500 volunteers, operating 36 services across 25 locations in Australia, including six services in remote communities, and three services across two locations in New Zealand. On top of the laundry service, Orange Sky now have vehicles fitted with mobile hot showers to serve those who don’t have access to the basics. Amazing. Nic and Lucas are doing great things and I loved our chat.
