Boystown Lottery tickets help clean up Sydney’s graffiti

Details here.

Almost three acres of Sydney’s graffiti has been cleaned up, in a ground breaking project partly funded by the BoysTown Charitable Lottery.

In the past 12 months, 10 young indigenous people from social housing in Blacktown and surrounding areas, have been employed and trained to remove graffiti.

“Focusing on the Bidwill/Mt Druitt area of western Sydney, the team has since removed over 11,000 square metres of graffiti and repaired roughly 300.
