Lendlease volunteers give Logan Village Aruma respite service a facelift

A LOGAN Village respite service is receiving a welcome facelift from community volunteers as part of a nation-wide initiative.

Disability service provider Aruma - formerly House with No Steps - worked with about 11 volunteers as part of Lendlease Foundation's Annual Community Day initiative.

It was one of more than 100 national projects to be undertaken by volunteers from Yarrabilba developer Lendlease.

They will assist with revamping the Logan Village centre, including painting the exterior of the house to give it a facelift.

Now in its 24th year, Community Day sees Lendlease employees to work alongside their colleagues, community partners and families, providing the chance to give back to the communities they live, work and play in.

Aruma area manager for children's services Birgitte Carmody said Aruma was grateful for the much-needed revamps.

"It's going to make such as difference to our respite service, and more importantly, to our customers - people with a disability," she said.

"We've been at this location for about eight years, and it was time for something fresh. With their help, we're going to be able to give our respite service a very colourful facelift. We know our customers will be thrilled with the result."

Head of the Lendlease Foundation Cate Harris said more than 4,000 Lendlease employees globally joined community volunteers to support more than 240 Community Day projects last year.

"Since 1996, we have supported activities ranging from working with schools to upgrade facilities, to cleaning and landscaping public spaces and refurbishing community facilities," she said.
