LES MILLS BARRE is helping to fund a new community project in partnership with The Sebastian Foundation. The funds will go toward a new kitchen and workspace for a community centre in South-East Sydney.

This area has been identified as a hot-spot of anti-social behavior and the community centre will provide underprivileged residents a place they can go for support, inspiration and care, with hope to change the face of the area for decades to come.

Scott Lambert, National Business Partnership Manager Australia for Les Mills Asia Pacific (LMAP), says the project aligns with the LES MILLS BARRE message, connecting with our community.

“The Les Mills Tribe is an inclusive, supportive community that encourages like-minded individuals to come together, so we think that the project between LES MILLS BARRE and The Sebastian Foundation is very fitting,” Scott said.

“We’re proud to be funding such an important project that will make a lasting impact in the lives of many, and also to work with an organisation that makes a huge difference in the community.”

The Sebastian Foundation Manager Rebecca Oxenbould says the project is very exciting and the foundation is thrilled to have Les Mills on board.

“We couldn’t do this project without the funding from Les Mills Asia Pacific, so we’re extremely grateful to be able to make a huge impact in the lives of those dealing with underprivilege.”

The partnership between LMAP and The Sebastian Foundation—founded by Australian identities Guy and Jules Sebastian—was to mark the launch of new group fitness program LES MILLS BARRE. The ballet inspired program is not only intended to be a wonderful workout, but an inspiring, fun, community building experience for like-minded individuals.
