Turner Freeman Lawyers have acted for thousands of people around Australia affected by asbestos related diseases and have been supporting the Asbestos Diseases Research Institute since it opens its doors in 2009.
ADRI’s goal is to save lives. Through its research into asbestos related diseases, ADRI aims to find a way to prevent and cure those suffering from the deadly diseases caused by exposure to asbestos.
It works with community groups to alert the public to the risks of exposure to asbestos and works with sufferers to provide support.
At the start of last season Turner Freeman Lawyers agreed to donate $500 for every goal scored by the Wanderers Isuzu UTE A-League Men’s team at both home and away matches during the 2021/22 season.
Given the Wanderers 30 goal tally last season, Turner Freeman Lawyers committed $15,000 to ADRI for the goals scored last season.
Turner Freeman Lawyers Managing Partner Armando Gardiman AM said he was proud to give back to the community through the Wanderers.
“With ADRI being the only dedicated research facility in Australia that studies and researches asbestos diseases, including the terminal cancer mesothelioma, we are proud to be able to show our support for ADRI in conjunction with our partners, Western Sydney Wanderers.”
Scott Hudson, CEO of the Wanderers, was grateful to Turner Freeman Lawyers, the Wanderers Official Legal Partner, and the work they do in the community.
“Working class groups from the Western Suburbs of Sydney are some of the most affected group of people in Australia so for Turner Freeman Lawyers to contribute $15,000 to ADRI to try find methods to prevent, diagnose and treat asbestos diseases is a great thing.”
Turner Freeman Lawyers will again be supporting the initiative in the 2022/23 season and hope the Wanderers can score more goals on the field to help ADRI achieve their goals off it.
