Dear Fellow Rotarians and Friends,
What an incredible Guest Speaker we had last week in Edmond from the Lend Lease Foundation and the great work they are doing on a worldwide basis .Hopefully this may well mean an opportunity for us .For instance they are working on Days for Girls projects overseas ,well known to Rotarians.
Plus following the success of a fortnight ago ,we are all ready for another BBQ session at Bunnings this coming Saturday .I’m sure we’ll be even better at it second time around with all the changes to the operational procedures.
In terms of returning to the Crows Nest Hotel ,additional capacity has been given to the outdoor capacity ,but they are still waiting for clarification on changes to what can done indoors .Still limited to 5 people in the Conference Room .Hoping for further up-dates in the coming week.
So in the meantime ,stay safe ,AND don’t forget your Trifecta Ticket sales .The Melbourne Cup is only two weeks away.
Stay Safe and YIR

Last Meeting Monday 19th October 2020 Edmund McComb presented 'The Lend Lease Foundation' and its activities.

When Dick Dusseldorp and Stuart Hornery set up the Lendlease Foundation in 1983, the objective was to nurture the wellbeing of employees and their families, and support employees involvement in charitable and community affairs. It was a goal ahead of its time and over the years it continues to prove to be something that makes us special. 

We partner with approved charities and community bodies in which we have an involvement.

Our global programs create a unified community with a common focus - to use our collective knowledge, skill and passion to enrich the lives of our people and the community. They are planning Net Zero Carbon by 2040 and $250Million in "social value" by 2025. 

The Lendlease Foundation has evolved its wellbeing portfolio of programs to address the four pillars of the Lendlease Health and Wellbeing Framework.  External partnerships are key to the development delivery of these programs.
Supporting Healthier Minds
Developing Healthier Bodies
Building Healthier Places
Creating Healthier Cultures 

Examples of their partnerships include Great Barrier Reef Organisation, Days for Girls & Suicide Prevention for Construction workers.  

The Foundation approves Community Grants of upto $10,000, and an application from our Rotary club is welcome.
