Lendlease - In it for the Long Run!
The Townsville Hospital Foundation is thrilled to announce 2018’s Move It Festival Major Sponsor – Lendlease!
Long-term supporters of the Townsville Hospital Foundation, Lendlease were quick to engage in discussions with the local charity once the sponsorship opportunities were released in late 2017.
As the nitty-gritty details were finalised, it’s been full-steam ahead with the two organisations creating some exciting plans for this latest collaboration.
“What we love about the Move It Festival is it’s 100 per cent local, with all the money raised going back into supporting our community through the Townsville Hospital Foundation,” says Lendlease Regional Development Manager Simon Walker.
“At Leandlease we have a variety of programs that focus on the health and wellbeing of our employees and that follows through to the communities we create too.”
That’s why over 30 per cent of Lendlease’s Elliot Springs masterplan is reserved for open space. Covering 1654 hectares on both sides of the Bruce Highway (city side of Billabong Sanctuary), the residential community will be home to around 26,000 people by 2057.
“On completion it’s going to be the size of Annandale, Aitkenvale, Mundingburra, Vincent and Gulliver combined,” Simon says.
“You don’t usually have masterplanned communities of this magnitude in regional areas but Lendlease sees the growth potential in Townsville,” Simon says.
“We believe in this town and are excited to have our first residents moving into Elliot Springs later this year.”
The Elliot Springs site will also feature an extensive network of walking and cycling paths linking local parks, sporting fields, playgrounds and picnic and barbeque areas, as well as a ridge walk, super park and mountain bike tracks. Indeed, in the not-too-distant future, it will be the perfect place to host an event like the Move It Festival.
“We have thoroughly enjoyed working with Lendlease on Move It Festival 2018” says General Manager of the Townsville Hospital Foundation, Judy Higgins-Olsen.
“The success of the planning and execution stages of Move It Festival are thanks to the support of wonderful local sponsors such as Lendlease. We truly could not deliver events such as this without them!”
