MATS committee calling for in kind donations

Maryborough paramedics Rhys Davey and Dan Staff and MATS project manager Clarrie Smith met with two local tradespeople who will be providing in kind support for the transfer station, Daryl Maffescioni and Hanson Construction Materialsʼ Paul Arscott at the Maryborough Airport last week.

As the construction of the Maryborough Aeromedical Transfer Station (MATS) draws closer, the project’s steering committee is calling on local businesses to put their hands up to help out.

A breakfast will be held this Friday for tradespeople and businesses interested in donating their services or materials to the project.

The breakfast will be followed by an information session for community members who are interested in finding out more about the project and how they can contribute.

MATS steering committee president Dianne Mullins said with two businesses already offering in kind donations, she hopes many more will contribute and attend the breakfast.

“Two businesses have already pledged in kind donations for the building base of the MATS project,” she said.

The business and trades breakfast will be held on Friday, November 15 from 7 to 9 am at the Maryborough Ambulance Station on Nightingale Street.

To RSVP text your name and number of people attending to Clarrie Smith on 0418 373 261.

The community information session will be held on the same date and location from 9.30 to 10.30 am.
