“Sing like no one is listening, love like you never been hurt, dance like no one is watching and live like it is heaven on earth.”― Mark Twain
Sunday, October 10th marks World Mental Health Day, a day to raise awareness on mental health issues across different industries, people and situations that we often take for granted without understanding the true impact that it has on some of our friends and colleagues.
Having experienced a very unsettling past 18 months since the Covid pandemic began, this emotional roller coaster has been a ride I am sure everyone is quite ready to be getting off. Our team has been strong and our team has been united, looking out for each other and making sure everyone is doing ok.
We acknowledge this tough period and to raise both internal and external awareness, we have made the decision to close our business on Friday 1st October. This will allow our full Sydney based team to enjoy an extended long weekend as Monday 4th October happens to be a public holiday in NSW.
If you or anyone you know is having a hard time and needs help, there are some incredible organisations that provide immediate assistance and resources for long term help. LightCo is a proud supporter of these organisations and would like to thank them for their ongoing amazing community work!

Look after yourself, look after each other and don’t be afraid to ask for help!
