SydLUG’s love of LEGO puts over $100k into local communities

Over the summer holiday period SydLUG has had time to take a breath and reflect on the amazing achievements of our group during 2019. The year was a busy one, full of public displays of all kinds.

SydLUG provided displays for 31 events as follows:

  • 3 school fetes
  • 5 hobby conventions
  • 10 community festivals
  • 13 LEGO fan exhibitions

This resulted in over 95,000 people seeing SydLUG’s creations and the incredible amount of over $107,000 being raised for schools, charities and other Not-For-Profit organisations. 

2020 is off to a good start for the LUG with two public displays having already taken place. On January 14, SydLUG put on a small display as part of the school holiday activities at Guildford Library, continuing a successful partnership with Cumberland Libraries and expanding to a branch that we had not previously visited. More library events are planned for later in the year, showcasing the skills of the LUG’s members while attracting visitors to an important and valuable community resource centre.

On January 16, SydLUG was involved in a Family Building Challenge for Springwood Anglican Churches in the Blue Mountains. This was a new event for the group, where we provided displays and judges for the build competitions. It proved to be a fantastic day of family friendly fun for the local community.

Members of SydLUG also attended Australia’s largest LEGO fan event, Brickvention, in Melbourne. We were very proud to announce that a medieval castle collaboration by three of our builders – Rod, Gavin and Josh – picked up three awards at the event including People’s Choice and Sponsor’s Choice.
