We support our communities through community participation, employing and supporting local, fundraising, volunteering and sponsorships.
Our people play an important role in promoting our community participation by identifying opportunities where we can assist. We encourage the development of strong relationships based on trust and understanding and this transfers across to our involvement in our communities.
After training for months, surveyors, engineers and GIS analysts from Fyfe’s Brisbane office tackled the Brisbane Marathon Festival in July 2021. The team ran 10km and half marathon distances to fundraise and support the Cure Brain Cancer Foundation. Everyone smashed their run while repping their signature Fyfe blue t-shirts.
The Letitia Linke Research Foundation is a cause that is close to the hearts of Fyfe staff and we are proud to support an organisation that is making a positive impact to the greater community to raise awareness of ovarian cancer.
For a third consecutive year, Fyfe is pleased to sponsor the Adelaide Silver Style Ball and send some of our people for a night of fun where we know our support makes a difference.
Our people live and work locally and for the past few years, we’ve supported the Narrabri Blue Boars. Following pandemic interruptions, we were excited to support some of our people and the team to get back on the field for a few games in 2021.
This year, the Santos Festival of Rugby saw the NSW Waratahs play the QLD Reds at Dangar Park, home of the Blue Boars. The club was able to benefit from the festival with some improvements to the field including the installation of lights.
We’re looking forward to seeing what the next season brings for the club. Go Blue Boars!
Fyfe has had a presence in Chinchilla and Roma for over ten years and were delighted to exhibit at the 2021 Chinchilla Careers Expo. Fyfe had the opportunity to speak to high school students from years 10 to 12 from several surrounding towns about a career in surveying. The students were keen to explore our high-tech equipment and learn about the many aspects of surveying and geospatial science.
This event was an excellent way to support and promote career paths to students in the regional communities in which we live and work.
Fyfe supported the Port Stephens Suicide Prevention Network (PSSPN) in planning for the Port Stephens Labyrinth. With eight Australians every day tragically making the decision to end their own lives and high suicide rates in the region, the project is an important one for the local community.
Labyrinths have been used across many cultures throughout history and research shows that they have a positive impact on mental health.
Fyfe was proud to provide pro bono surveying services and provide guidance to help accelerate the planning and approvals process.
Founded in 2007, the Friends of East Point Landcare Group in Darwin work to promote, protect and enhance the local natural environment at East Point Reserve. The land initially presented as a disturbed area of remnant vegetation with many pockets of weeds, dumped rubbish and annual fires.
Fyfe began sponsoring the Friends of East Point Landcare Group in 2021 in support of the group’s efforts to protect the important habitat corridor for many bird species and wallabies, while maintaining the cultural and aesthetic values of the area. Through Fyfe’s sponsorship, the group is able to continue their work preserving local nature, while encouraging the wider community to enjoy the area.
