An early morning crowd braved the winter chill to witness the grand unveiling of Toby's Platform at Brookfield Multiplex's Darling Harbour site. In a joint initiative by Preston Hire and Brookfield Multiplex to raise awareness for Cystic Fibrosis Australia (CFA), a SuperDeck™ was adorned with CFA's Red Rose then hoisted high above street level in Sydney's CBD.

Cystic Fibrosis is a genetic disorder of the lungs which affects one in 25 Australians. It can cause patients to have difficulty with breathing and can also result in other ongoing complications.

Courageous four-year-old CF patient Toby, who was diagnosed at the age of one and whom the container has been named after, was proudly backed by his family and other key figures involved with making the project happen including aunt and Preston Group Charity Coordinator Marika Preston, Brookfield Multiplex Regional Managing Director David Ghannoum and Chief Executive Officer of CFA Nettie Burke.
