Ken has been a volunteer with the Salvation Army since 1950. He has been working at Oasis for 10 years and despite his quirky disapproval of the behaviour of the kids, he absolutely relishes working on site and especially with Paul. Ken deeply believes in devoting his entire life to serving God and the Salvos, and performs his duties - answering the phone, collecting the mail, distributing the mail, organising the queue of kids to see Paul - to the utmost. He especially considers the collection box to be his calling and can be seen in full uniform and regalia collecting donations at pubs and clubs around the suburbs of Sydney when he is not at Oasis.
