Building community

Lendlease’s Melbourne Quarter project team helped with maintenance of Mission to Seafarers on its community day on September 14.

A team of dozens of employees carried out painting, cleaning, gardening and general maintenance and tidy up at the 100-year-old heritage building on Flinders St, Docklands.

Lendlease’s community day is held across Lendlease offices around the world every September, when more than 5000 employees and families work on more than 350 projects.

Since the initiative started in 1966, Lendlease’s staff and volunteers have given more than 600,000 hours of help.

“Melbourne Quarter is the newest part of the Docklands community and we are very keen to connect with Mission to Seafarers, which is among the oldest parts of the community that been here for over 100 years,” Brian Herlihy, Melbourne Quarter’s project director, said.

“It’s all about giving back to the communities that we are in and building the connection with our neighbours. Engaging with Mission to Seafarers is part of building that community identity and bond,” he said.

Mission to Seafarers’ manager, Sue Dight, said Lendlease’s effort would help the mission look fresher.

“It provides our volunteers and visiting seafarers with a clean and comfortable space and provides the mission a reinvigorated energy that we wanted to see,” Ms Dight said.
