The company in charge of the multi-billion dollar Tindal RAAF Base upgrade is giving back to the community this week. 

36 Lendlease employees are taking part in a community project for to revamp the Katherine Doorways Hub.

As part of Community Day, the team will be painting new skirting boards and installing much needed shelving.

The Hub will also be receiving new washing machines, a new dishwasher for the soup kitchen, new toasters and a microwave. 

“Community Day offers employees a chance to apply their experience and skills to make a meaningful and positive contribution to our local communities,” head of Lendlease sustainability Cate Harris said. 

“Community Day has become a great part of our history and culture. Since it started in 1996, we have supported activities ranging from renovating buildings for the homeless, to restoring green spaces and assisting children with special needs.”

Now in its 23rd year, Community Day enables Lendlease employees to work alongside the community to make a difference where they live and work.

Community Day projects are sourced and initiated by Lendlease employees, giving them the ability to choose where they want to lend a hand and where they can be most helpful. 

Lendlease has also signed an MoU with Katherine High School to get more students working in the industry. 

On a recent trip to Katherine Lendlease chief executive officer (building) Dale Connor said: “We are here for a long period of time so we are interested in engaging the community to get the percentage of local participation as high as possible.”
