Leading projects firm Sinclair Knight Merz (SKM) is hoping to raise $20,000 for Community Plus as it competes in the Santos GLNG Brisbane to the Gold Coast Cycle Challenge in October.skmwech1

With 20 staff participating in the 100-kilometre ride, SKM is “cycling the talk” and living by its ethos of delivering a positive impact on the communities in which it operates.

SKM has a strong partnership arrangement with West End Community House (WECH), working closely with WECH to support a range of community initiatives and events.

SKM’s Hope Stevens acknowledged the many benefits of the close relationship with WECH. “We’ve shared a lot of information about our respective organisations, discussed various models of corporate citizenship, what we’re both seeking from a partnership and the many ways we can work effectively together,” she said.

Participating in the ride is the latest initiative to support WECH, and a great way for SKM staff to give back to their local community.

“We are proud to participate in this community event as it is not only a great team building event for staff, it will also make a big difference to the community partner we are supporting; that’s a strong incentive and will make us pedal harder for sure!”
