We’ve all been to the Canberra Centre and have come down the escalator to see a lovely man, sitting there taking donations on behalf of the Salvation Army. How can you not walk past him and donate.

His name is Allan Jessop and he is one of Kristen and Nige’s hidden gem of Canberra. Allan has been volunteering for over 30 years has and raised over $4 million.

We have been told about some big news – Allan is retiring from his role at the Salvation Army. Kristen and Nige have decided to throw him his very own retirement party at the Canberra Centre and give him the send off he deserves.

We speak with the man himself AND his daughter about the wonderful impact he has had on Canberra.
