Thank you to the 2,800 employees who attended the NSW end of year celebration for raising such a significant amount for MATES in Construction (MiC) NSW

Our NSW employees were among the first to experience the brand new International Convention Centre (ICC) Sydney proudly  developed by Lendlease.

There was a small fee for employees to purchase end-of-year celebration tickets, and funds raised went directly to MATES in Construction NSW. MiC work closely with our construction sites, and they do great work in supporting suicide prevention within our industry.

The festive season is unfortunately a period of significant increase in mental health problems, suicide and risky behaviours and the funds collected from ticket sales were donated to support workers through training, case management and the MiC 24/7 support line.

MATES in Construction CEO for NSW Peter McClelland said: “My team and I sincerely thank the employees who participated in Lendleases’s end of year celebration that raised $28,000.00 to support our program.

“Contributions like this allow us to continue our work in promoting good mental health and suicide prevention. To date, just under 30,000 NSW construction industry workers have participated in our training, but more importantly, we are assisting 431 workers  deal with a multitude of life issues that otherwise may have not have been attended to. Together we are making a tangible difference in our industry.”

Thank you to everyone who attended the celebration and made a donation.
