Without the support of the local community and all our sponsors Mackay & District Spinal Injuries Association wouldn’t exist. So we like to thank and acknowledge the following sponsors, it is only by their contributions that we are able to support our clients and the community.
Our Ongoing Sponsors
We would like to thank The Buffalo Club, Payne Print and Stickers & Signs for their continuing support towards Mackay &District Spinal Injuriesthroughout the years. The Buffalo Club has supported MDSIA ever since it began in 1988 and is one of the main reasons we are here today. While both Hayne Print and Stickers & Signs have provided us with vital resources to help us advertise, fundraise and promote events to the community.

Renovations for Para-villa
At the start of 2010 MDSIA began fundraising for Para-villa, which needed major renovation after being used for supported respite or transitional accommodation for over 27 years. After four years of fundraising we were able to complete most of the renovation in 2014 which included new bathrooms, a veranda to able clients to go outside and a fresh coat of paint to bring the house back to life. Without the help of the community and the major sponsors below none of this would be possible.
A big thank-you to Westpac, Mycow accommodation and Wayne Taylor Architect. Also thank-you to Doll & Bear Show, Rotary Mackay, North Jacklyn, Scope Club, Porters, Beales IGA Clermont, Cashy’s Excavation, Holcim Mackay, and Peter Caruana Concreting
Wheelchair Accessible Bus
In 2008 MDSIA was able to raise enough money to purchase a wheelchair accessible vehicle for the residents of Para-villa and others clients in the community. Having an accessible vehicle has opened up many opportunities for the residents and clients that were not available to them. A big thank-you to all the following sponsors who made this possible: Westof Mining Services, Mackay Stickers & Signs, Carlisle Motors, Steel Pacific, JJ Richards & Sons, Porters, Barbeques Galore, Hatfields, Camping World Mackay, Mackay Cable Services, Mackay Car Wash
The bus requires ongoing funds to maintain and to pay for repairs and we are looking for new sponsor to advertise on the bus to cover these. If you are interested in sponsoring this service or getting involved in any of MDSIA’s future events or projects please Contact us
