Lendlease creates a brighter future for Yarrabilba mother

Yarrabilba mother Leanne James is one step closer to achieving her dreams of becoming a registered nurse helping children with cancer, thanks to a generous community scholarship program.

A partnership between Lendlease and Bendigo Bank, the Yarrabilba Brighter Futures Scholarship Program is providing $5,000 grant towards Leanne’s studies, helping to remove the financial barriers of higher education.

After completing a Diploma in Nursing in 2016, Leanne took a few years off to raise her daughter, before deciding she wanted to further her studies and become registered nurse. As a single mum on one income, the costs to undertake further study proved challenging.

Leanne applied for the Yarrabilba Brighter Futures Scholarship Program and was successfully awarded the grant earlier this year and is now one step closer to achieving her dreams of working in paediatric oncology.
