Opportunities to Sponsor

Special Request $600

  • Our sewing program is in need of a little help. We have money left over from a grant and a donation for an over-locker in the form of a voucher at the shop, but we are $600 short of the cost price for the over-locker. Our sewing classes would be enhanced significantly, especially for those keen to learn mending or sewing on tougher materials. 


  • Our Hounds4Healing Assistance Dog Program. An assistance dog for a veteran who is in need of mental health support = $2500 / year.

  • Sewing Program. Consumables and maintenance of equipment four participants for a three month workshop = $200 / month.

  • Art Program. Consumables for four participants for a three month workshop = $500

  • One Operation FARMER ASSIST expedition. An expedition for up to 12 people (mix of veterans, partners, civilian friends) for 7 days to western Queensland on Operation FARMER ASSIST to support farmers = $7,000 / expedition to western Queensland. If a sponsoring organisation would like to send one or two representatives, like staff, for the experience of a lifetime, that is entirely in line with our objectives of bringing our ex-ADF community closer to the Townsville and business community. These teams do some great work, see the Operation FARMER ASSIST page here


  • Expedition Trailer Upgrades. A purpose built trailer to take water for drinking and showering, fridge for food, generator and lighting, space for stretchers and personal equipment (and rego and insurance) so that our presence does not put undue strain on the farmers resources is under construction thanks to Shaw Wines. We are building it strong so we can add to it over time and perfect it for operations out west. We are doing upgrades and modifications each costed at $5000. 

  • Four for Sewing. An additional table for 4 participants in the sewing program including sewing machines =$6,000 one-off per group of 4 extra participants

  • Four for Painting. Additional 4 participants in the art program including easels, painting sets and clean up material = $4,000 one-off per 4 extra participants

  • Video Teleconferencing Capability. $12,000 for the fitout of a video / teleconferencing capability in a designated break-out room for veterans and their families to participate in meetings with specialists not resident in Townsville; and particularly for appearances before the Veterans Review Board by veterans making claims to DVA.
