One of the Coast’s leading signage companies have teamed up with renowned Sunshine Coast charity Wishlist.
Sunquest Signs have signed on as a valuable Alliance Partner of the local health foundation which has been operating since 1998 to support the growing health needs of patients and families on the Sunshine Coast and Gympie.
It’s a cause close to General Manager Paula Gowland’s heart.
In 2014, Paula fell and broke her leg in four places, but complications during her treatment resulted in her leg being amputated below the knee.
Paula spent 758 days in hospital and encountered the lowest of lows, along with her husband John and three children.
“We chose to become a Wishlist Alliance partner because we love that they raise funds to help families of the Sunshine Coast Hospital and Health Service by reducing the stress of long hospital visits when families are dealing with unexpected medical journeys,” Paula says.
“This is an issue that is very close to our hearts and we know first-hand how important it is to stay connected with loved ones through these challenging times.”Wishlist Fundraising and Partnerships Lead Jasmine Wheatley said the timing of partnership was beneficial to both parties following the recent opening of four-level patient accommodation facility Wishlist Centre, opposite the Sunshine Coast University Hospital.
“Paula and John are extremely community-minded and we look forward to working with the team for our signage needs at Wishlist Centre and exciting projects within our hospitals,” Mrs Wheatley says.
“We appreciate businesses like Sunquest Signs becoming partners to make a very real difference in the lives of patients and families.”
Sunquest Signs is based in Warana and was established in 2007. They are now one of the leaders in brand identity, marketing and communication tools.
“At Sunquest Signs we feel our signage acts as a beacon to connecting people together on the Sunshine Coast, and as our company grows it is very important to us to help and support our local community,” Paula adds.
Wishlist directs more than $1 million to supporting the growing health needs of patients and families on the Sunshine Coast and Gympie through the provision of medical equipment, hospital accommodation, patient support services, research and education.
