Beacon Light the Way - Thanks $44k raised

Light the Way to help support 330 students

Lake Haven Centre would like to thank our customers and retailers who have helped raise $44,000 for Beacon Foundation as part of our first-ever Light the Way campaign.

We launched Light the Way to support young people living in our communities and the money raised is going to see an additional 330 students complete Beacon’s career pathway programs.

Beacon Foundation motivates young people for a successful post-secondary school career. Their programs help equip students with the skills and confidence required to make the transition from school to work and reduce the rate of youth unemployment.

Mike Cochrane, Centre Manager at Lake Haven Centre said, “We are grateful to the many people who donated and gave up their time to make Light the Way such a success and we look forward to continuing the campaign next year.”

Scott Harris, Chief Executive Officer, Beacon Foundation said, “I would like to congratulate and thank Lake Haven Centre on the inaugural Light the Way initiative. Visiting local centres and hearing stories from around the country, it was clear that the Vicinity team was passionate about supporting Australian youth to be the best they can be.”
