Local businesses team-up with Wishlist

Two Sunshine Coast-based companies have teamed-up with Wishlist, supporting their work to enhance the health service on the Coast.

International Maroochydore-based technology company, EyeOnIt and Warana-based national equipment manufacturer, Quik Corp, have joined the Wishlist Partnership Program to show their commitment to their local community.

Wishlist’s partnership program harnesses the support of local businesses to enhance the work of the Sunshine Coast Hospital and Health Service for the benefit of local families.

IMG_2872EyeOnIt Founder, Phillipa Harcourt McNamara, said the decision to support Wishlist is based on their long term and diverse community focus delivering positive impacts to people’s lives when needed.

“EyeOnIt, we are proud to live and work on the idyllic Sunshine Coast. Partnering with Wishlist allows us to give back to our local community, a value close to our heart.

“We look forward to our 2019 partnership with Wishlist and are excited to be supporting a fantastic local organisation and great team,” Ms Harcourt McNamara said.

IMG_2868Quik Corp Managing Director, David Wardle, said the company wanted to support something in the local area that they felt made a significant difference to people’s lives.

“After visiting the hospital and seeing what was being done to help, it was an easy choice for us.

“Our staff can appreciate what it feels like to have a family member or friend ill. It is never a good time. So, to be able to actively contribute to improving facilities and accommodation to help those who are doing it tough was supported by the whole business as the best way to give back to our community,” Mr Wardle said.

IMG_2861Wishlist Lisa Rowe said the partnerships are crucial to the foundation and its fundraising efforts.

“Wishlist’s partnership program sees an exclusive club of local businesses work towards our shared vision, to provide the best health services possible for our families.

“In the case of both Quik Corp and EyeOnIt, our charity is partnered with cutting edge, locally-based business leaders, both achieving incredible things in the world marketplace.  As with all our partners, both businesses share a passion for the Coast community which is a win for Wishlist and potentially every Sunshine Coast family who visit a local hospital or health service.

“We are incredibly excited to be working with the Quik Corp and EyeOnIt teams,” Ms Rowe said.

Already in 2019, Wishlist has approved another $92,000 in support of local health services thanks largely to the support of local business.
