Bechtel raises thousands of dollars for Leukaemia patients

Bechtel has raised more than $126,000 to support Leukaemia patients and their families.

The fundraising effort was supported by Bechtel’s team across all three of the Curtis Island LNG projects during the World’s Greatest Shave.

Representatives from the LNG plants attended a presentation at the Leukaemia Foundation of Queensland’s accommodation village in Brisbane this week where they were able to see how the money is used to support families living with the impacts of a blood cancer diagnosis.

“So many people directly or through family and friends have been affected by cancer so it’s important we all do our bit to help make their journey to recovery that little bit easier,” said Kevin Berg, Bechtel Gladstone General Manager.

“The workforce on the Curtis Island projects have been tremendously generous with donations always stepping up to the challenge when called upon whether it be the World’s Greatest Shave, Red Shield Appeal or donations to help local families in need. I hope what our employees have raised over the past few years from Gladstone is able to make a difference to the lives of those families.”

Since 2013, the Curtis Island projects have donated more than $254,000 to the Leukaemia Foundation of Queensland through the World’s Greatest Shave campaigns.
