Mater Foundation is delighted to introduce Mater Community Hero, a formal recognition and celebration of the inspiring contributions of our volunteers, fundraisers and advocates.
Very fittingly, Mater Mackay Auxiliary has scooped the first-ever award.
Mater Mackay Auxiliary bake the best cakes in Central Queensland, but their legacy is far more poignant.
This incredible group of volunteers have the recipe book perfected- they’ve been fundraising for Mater Private Hospital Mackay for over 40 years.
Mater Mackay Auxiliary raise funds through raffles, Melbourne Cup Sweeps and a Cake, Craft and Plant stall and many more fundraising efforts to ensure Mater Private Hospital Mackay continues to deliver exceptional care for the people of Mackay.
Each member of this incredible group lives the Mater values of integrity and compassion.
The long commitment of this volunteer group, who demonstrate sincere care and passion for the Mackay community and work of Mater Mackay, is why it is being honoured as a Mater Foundation Community Hero.
