SEW-Eurodrive is not only a leader in the field of motor drives and gears, it is also a community leader.
 
By any measure SEW-Eurodrive is one of Australia’s best corporate citizens.
 
For the past 15 years the company has been a major sponsor of the Mental Illness Fellowship of Victoria, raising more than $1.5 million for this worthy cause.
 
These much needed funds have helped to change the lives of thousands.
 
Each year SEW-Eurodrive hosts two charity events in support of the Mental Illness Fellowship of Victoria.
 
Mental Illness Fellowship Victoria is not-for-profit organization established in 1978 by families wanting to improve the services and information available to people affected by mental illness.
 
Today Mental Illness Fellowship Victoria is one of Australia’s leading community managed mental health agencies. It provides support services to about 5,000 people a year.
 
Mental Illness Fellowship Victoria works with people with severe and enduring mental illness, delivering programs across metropolitan and regional Victoria, and in the ACT.
 
About 300 guests attended last year’s SEW-Eurodrive charity event at Melbourne’s Etihad Stadium.
 
A charity luncheon will be held at the Stadium on Wednesday, August 7.
 
The luncheon will again be held as a lead up to SEW-Eurodrive’s charity golf tournament, expected to be held in October this year at the Sanctuary Lakes Golf Club.
