The humble plastic brick helps raise over $100k for local communities

As 2018 draws to a close we look back on the year that was for SydLUG, and what a year it was…

 Sydney’s only registered LUG continued to grow its membership, building a vibrant community (both online and in person) for its AFOL members to collaborate and share their passion for LEGO with each other.

2018 was a year full of public displays, allowing SydLUG to make significant contributions to its local communities. SydLUG members took part in 33 events, many of which were organised by LUG members, delighting over 87,000 members of the public and raising over $105,000 for charities, schools and other not for profit groups. SydLUG members are proud to have been able to harness the power of creativity and have such a positive impact on the world around them.

SydLUG members continue to be recognised by the global LEGO community for their inspiring builds, raising the bar for quality and ingenuity. Builds from SydLUG members have been featured on a variety of blogs, fan sites and in magazines. SydLUG president, Gavin Rich, said that 2018 has been a proud year for the LUG.

“Thank you to every member of SydLUG for your collective contributions to the success of the LUG. It has been a pleasure to be part of this group and I’m continually amazed by the creations of our members and the willingness of members to get involved and give back to our local communities,” he said.

More exciting plans are already underway for public shows in 2019 and SydLUG builders have some brilliant ideas for all new builds. Stay tuned for a brick-tastic New Year!
