Support a MATE: MATES in Construction


Support a MATE: MATES in Construction

Degnan’s Ellie Bowden is venturing through the historic WWII tracks of the Kokoda Trail to raise funds for MATES in Construction.
We offer her unwavering support on this adventure and her continued efforts to support others. Ellie is an integral part of our workforce; she constantly mentors, listens and encourages everyone around her, now it’s time for us to give back some of her enthusiasm in creating a positive impact for those in need. GO ELLIE!

Here’s what Ellie has to say…


“MATES in Construction is a for the industry, by the industry, not for profit that exists to strengthen the construction, mining and energy industries by preventing suicide; because a life saved is one less family grieving, one less site devastated and one less community heartbroken.

“I am fundraising for MIC through raising awareness on my Kokoda Trail journey.
Thank you DEGNAN and to all who have already donated.
My mantra “Listen, Empower, Support”
In Construction Words…. “Bloody look out for each other!”

“If you or your mate is struggling, talk to a Connector or call the MATES 24/7 Helpline on 1300 642 111.”
