Happy New Year!!

May 2016 bring you much joy & inspiration in all areas of your lives…

We are thrilled to present to you our Minda Benefit Quilt Challenge fabrics. This year’s fabric is a selection of the beautiful Color Movement range of fabrics by Kona Bay Fabrics and has been kindly donated by Lloyd Curzon Textiles

We appreciate your support in this quilting challenge and look forward to raising much needed funds for such a worthy cause. If you don’t know about the fantastic work that Minda do please check out some of the fantastic stories from the “our stories” section on the website at www.mindainc.com.au but here is a short overview.

At Minda, we create an environment where people with intellectual disability can embrace and enjoy the experiences of life.

Minda is at the forefront of the disability sector, offering support and opportunity to approximately 1,700 people in the areas of accommodation, supported employment, lifestyle services and respite.

We are committed to creating a dynamic environment where people can live lives of their choosing.

Due to the onset of the National Disability Insurance Scheme, Minda must diversify its revenue streams to ensure that its future is sustainable and the highest quality of service and care can continue to be offered to people living with intellectual disability. Any funds raised through fundraising activities will help us to provide more services to people living with intellectual disability.

You can now order the challenge kits online quickly & EFT the funds to avoid Australia Post delays. You can find this page here

See you in 2016!!
